This year, Kyiv Day falls on May 31. On this day, the capital will celebrate its birthday and will be 1538 years old. This date, of course, is conditional, because the history of the city goes back to the end of the 5th century, and it is not possible to establish the exact year.
The upcoming holiday will be held under quarantine restrictions, which, recently are being weakened, but still the mass events are not allowed.
So, unlike last year, in 2020 Kyiv will not hold any mass events on its birthday. Although
his, of course, does not mean that there will be no holiday at all.
It is possible that the celebration plans will be expanded with new locations and events. If so, we will add them. In the meantime, the situation is as follows.
This year it will be held online. And, of course, it will take place under the banner of combating Covid-19. The start of the event is scheduled for 9 a.m. on May 31.
All comers were encouraged to join the initiative by making a charitable contribution.
The collected funds will be directed to help Ukrainian doctors and medical institutions: the Center for Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, as well as various hospitals.
The organizers say that “a team of ambassadors will run the distance of 5 km live on the streets of Kyiv for each participant in the run.”
The rules are as follows: charitable contribution - 100 UAH. Individual participants and teams from 10 people are invited.
An offline run under chestnuts is going to take place in a year, on May 30, 2021.
