On August 24, the 24th anniversary of Ukraine's modern independence, there will be a unique commemoration. At 10am, Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations (AFUO) activists are encouraging a moment of national silence to honour those who have given their lives for Ukraine's democracy and sovereignty - whether on Maidan or in ATO. The moment also marks Ukraine's current efforts to build its new future. AFUO encourages the community to join in this honourable initiative.
