As 112 International reported, January 19 traditionally proved to be a true holiday for body, mind and soul for many churchgoers who celebrated Epiphany. In many cities, town and villages across the country priests consecrated water while believers bathed in the icy water in rivers and ponds.

One of Ukraine’s news agencies launched a quadcopter to film the holiday action on the banks of Dnipro river in Kyiv.

A lot of people showed true courage and willpower – well, just enough to jump in an ice-hole amidst the freezing temperatures. Emergency and rescue teams duly observed the situation – in Kyiv and other places.
