Day of Unity of Ukraine


Every year on the day of proclamation of the Act of Unification of the Ukrainian People’s Republic and the Western Ukrainian People’s Republic, our state celebrates the Day of Unity. The Act of Unification crowned the conciliar aspirations of Ukrainians in both parts of Ukraine – the Dnieper region and the Transnistrian region – at least from the middle of the 19th century. This was a fundamental event for Ukrainian statehood. The idea of ​​catholicity has always been a cornerstone and relevant for Ukrainians. From the second half of the 19th century, Ukrainian political unity became one of the leading motives for declarations and the activities of the national movement on both sides of the Dnieper. Unity presupposes not only the memory of the past, but also the need for united joint work and interaction in modern Ukraine, when we, from different regions, communicate, work together, create significant and important. This year, the school family joined the festivities online. For grades 2-11, class teachers prepared and conducted thematic information hours. Students of the school joined the annual All-Ukrainian action “Living Chain of Unity” online, taking pictures with the symbols of our state. During the lessons, history teachers together with high school students created an oral journal “United Ukraine from West to East”.

Note: For the first time in the XX century Ukrainian independence was proclaimed on January 22, 1918 by the IV Universal of the Ukrainian Central Rada, and within a year (January 22, 1919) on Sophia Square in Kyiv an equally important event took place – the unification of the Ukrainian People’s Republic and the Western Ukrainian People’s Republic in one state.
