Ukraine Celebrates

I'm afraid my knowledge of Ukraine and its people is very limited, but this is a big week in Ukraine.

The Nationalists celebrate the historical significance and achievements of the Ukrainian Cossacks in the development of the Ukrainian statehood and their contribution to the creation of the modern state.

Monday last was important as October 14 is when the eastern rite churches of Orthodox and Greek Catholic Christians celebrate the Holy Virgin holiday. The Blessed Virgin Mary is the patroness of Ukrainian Cossacks. The Cadet Corps took the oath, received awards for their achievements in Cossack studies, marched through the streets, showed their athletic skills, and sang songs dedicated to motherland, friendship and love.

We wish them well.
