A Defenders' March with the participation of veterans will be held instead of a military parade on the Independence Day of Ukraine. The ceremony starts on August 24 at 9:30 near the memorial cross for the Heroes of Heavenly Hundred. This was reported on the President's Office website.

“This year, the celebration of the 28th anniversary of Ukraine’s independence will be held in a new format. The main focus of the celebrations is children as the future of the country,” the President’s Office noted.

Near the memorial cross, a nationwide minute of silence will be proclaimed.

“In a sign that Ukraine and Ukrainians remember their heroes, one hundred strikes of the bell will sound, which will continue in other cities of the state. They will symbolize one hundred heartbeats of each of the fallen Heroes of Heavens Hundred,” the presidential press service explained.

Relatives and friends of the fallen defenders of Ukraine, anti-terrorist operation veterans, children will take part in the memorial event together with the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and his family. They will lay flowers at the place of death of the Heroes of Heavens Hundred and tie blue-yellow ribbons.

As part of the celebration, a musical and choreographic flashmob will also take place on the main square of the country: iconic Ukrainian songs will be played in a modern arrangement, performed by orchestras and famous musicians.

In addition, the awarding ceremony will be held for Ukrainians who have achieved success in various fields. It will start at around 9:50.

Celebrations will end with a festive procession. After that, at 11:00 the March of the Defenders of Ukraine with the participation of veterans will begin.
