Crimean Tatars, IDPs from Crimea gather people for procession in Kyiv on August 24
On Independence Day, activists will remind the rest of Ukrainian society of those who support the army in the fight against Russian aggression
The public action will involve thousands of natives of Crimea – Crimean Tatars and internally displaced Ukrainians who chose to move to the mainland Ukraine after the Russian occupation of Crimea. The organizers aim to gather and remember the society about the people who don’t serve with the military but support the army in the ongoing struggle against the aggressor country.
‘This procession is a tribute to the doctors, volunteers, families of the servicemen, and the soldiers who returned from the battlefield. This is a sign of our resiliency. We’re here, we’re alive, and we’re ready to struggle for the better fate! Thus, we’re asking volunteer battalions and NGOs, volunteers, chaplains, doctors and families of the deceased warriors join the March of The Adamant on August 24, the Independence Day’, the organizers say.
On August 24, Ukrainians will celebrate the 25th anniversary of independence of their country. The festivities will be held for several days in a row, and security measures will be vastly increased - specifically, in Kyiv, where the military parade will be held.
