Today, on August 24, Ukrainians celebrate the 25th anniversary of their state’s independence.

On this day, in 1991, the Parliament of the-then Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic adopted the Act of Proclamation of Independence. Since then, August 24 is celebrated as the Independence Day – the favorite holiday of many people.

A lot of festive events will take place today across the country. President Petro Poroshenko will lay flowers to the monument of great poet Taras Shevchenko. The military parade and solemn processions will take place in Kyiv.
