The Day of Ukraine's Airborne Forces is celebrated annually on November 21. Until 2019, it was August 2, like in Russia now.
On August 2, Ukrainians pay tribute to the paratroopers who defended the country and the nation at the cost of their lives. The General Staff of the Armed Forces came up with a reminder on its official Facebook page.
"August 2, Ukraine will host solemn events to honor the memory of the deceased paratroopers who gave their lives, defending Ukraine from Russian terrorists and occupants", reads the message.
All military units of Ukraine's Airborne Assault Forces will participate in the events. In particular, a ceremony will take place at Zhytomyr's military cemetery; this city hosts the HQ of the 95th Detached Brigade of the Airborne Assault Forces.
