On January 22, Ukraine celebrate Ukrainian Unity Day. On this day in 1919, the Act of Unification of the Ukrainian People’s Republic (UNR) and the West Ukrainian People’s Republic (ZUNR) was proclaimed on Sofia Square in Kyiv.

The Unity Day was first celebrated at the state level in 1999. The holiday invoked to testify to the consolidation and steadfastness of the Ukrainian people, the unity of the citizens of Ukraine living in its various regions.

Now Russian terrorists are trying to divide us. But our state is stronger now than ever.

Many students from different parts of Ukraine study at our university. Together we celebrate the Day of Unity, thereby demonstrating that Ukraine is a single state.

Children and family, peace and tranquility, hope and faith, respect for human dignity, freedom and justice are our values.
