The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine congratulated the country with a happy Independence Day with the poem of Lina Kostenko “The evening Sun” (Vechirnie sontse). The congratulation was published on the official Twitter page.
“Happy Independence Day, Ukraine! The U.S. is your proud partner in Ukraine’s pursuit of prosperity and a bright, European future,” the post reads.
The congratulation of the diplomatists and volunteers of the Peace Corps was recorded in different places of Ukraine where they were reading Lina Kostenko’s poem “The Evening Sun” accompanied by the guitar.
“This poem became a beautiful song a few years ago due to BRUTTO band and our Press-Officer Ray Kastyllo could not but play and sing it. We enjoyed the beauty of Ukraine as well as every line of the poem and the song. See for yourself what we have got,” said the Embassy.
As we reported earlier, the rehearsal of the Procession of Dignity took place in Kyiv on Thursday evening on August 22. This is one of the two major events to take place in the Ukrainian capital on Independence Day, August 24.
