President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in his military parade speech quoted Ukrainian poet Pavlo Tychyna referring to Russia’s “inventions”. 112UA Chanel was broadcasting the event.

“In the Kremlin “laboratories” they make up Novorossiya; then announce Malorossiya. What can be said? Let them dwell in madness, agonize as they please, and we have things to do. Even though this quote is from the already sovietized Tychyna, it serves well as the response to Russians,” the president said.

Pavlo Tychyna was a major Ukrainian poet, who, under the pressure of the Stalinist terror in the 1930s, started to write poems in compliance with the Soviet ideology. Many of his contemporaries were executed or sent to forced labour camps. This époque of Ukrainian creative eilte repressed in the 1920s-1930s is called the Executed Renaissance.
