Press notice – 30 Anniversary Ukraine’s Independence 24 August 1991.
Thirty years ago, on 24 August 1991, Ukraine’s Parliament issued a Declaration of Independence, which was subsequently confirmed in a referendum on 1 December by an overwhelming 92.3% of Ukrainians on a national turnout of over 84%. This included over 80% of those who voted in eastern provinces of Ukraine and well over 50% of those in Crimea.
The last 30 years have shown the determination of Ukrainians to fight for their independence and create a new future based on European values and respect for social justice and human rights. In 2004 and again in 2014, the Ukrainian people showed that they would never give up their identity as a sovereign nation, even at the cost of their own lives.
While we celebrate today, our celebrations are tinged with sadness – for the lives lost defending Ukraine from Russia’s war in the east, for our Crimean Tatar brothers and sisters whose human rights are being violated following Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014, and for all those who have lost their families and homes from Russia’s continued and unwarranted aggression. We also acknowledge the help and practical support Ukraine has received from the UK Government, amongst others, to strengthen our defensive capabilities and develop Ukraine’s democratic institutions.
Ukraine stands on the border between the democratic West and the totalitarian Russian state. It reminds us that democracy and respect for human rights is a cause that is worth fighting for. As the Ukrainian national anthem says: We will lay down our souls and our lives for our freedom.
On this day we stand heart and soul in solidarity with Ukrainians everywhere as we say Glory to Ukraine!
Leeds City Council have agreed to light up the Leeds Town Hall, Civic Hall and City Museum in blue and yellow on 24th August 2021 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Independence in Ukraine. They have also agreed to fly our national flag over two civic buildings. Please join us in celebrating this event. Come along and meet up outside the Town Hall in your embroidered shirts just before 20:00.
The lights will come on at dusk just after 20:00.

We celebrate the history of Krylati Ukrainian Dance Ensemble in Bradford, with a collection of classic footage from the groups past. Click Here To Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLVWTPYIhik
A Ukrainian dance group has been in existence in Bradford since 1948 following the migration of quite a large number of Ukrainians after the second World War. In 1963 the group was reorganised and adopted the name “Krylati” (translated this means the winged ones). The ballet-master and choreographer Ostap Buriak became its director who was active until his death in 1995. He trained two young choreographers, Olha Stepovanna and the late Mykhailo Diakiw, as his successors. Olha Stepovanna taught the group until 2007, Mychajlo Shutak took on the task as the teacher after numerous years of dancing under all three previous choreographers. From the sixties to the present day the group has represented Bradford Ukrainians in numerous festivals and has appeared several times on T.V. The group was invited many times to the international Eisteddfod in Llangollen it also performed at Bradford Theatres the Alhambra and St Georges Hall.

MAIDAN chronicles the civil uprising that took place in Kiev (Ukraine) in the winter of 2013/14. The film follows the progress of the revolution: from peaceful rallies, half a million strong, in the Maidan square, to the bloody street battles between the protestors and riot police. MAIDAN is a portrait of an awakening nation, rediscovering its identity. Director Sergei Loznitsa rises above current political issues and looks at the nature of the popular uprising as a social, cultural and philosophical phenomenon. A powerful mix of enthusiasm, heroic struggle, terror, courage, aspiration, people& solidarity, folk culture, passion and self-sacrifice, MAIDAN is a stunning cinematic canvas combining classical film making style and documentary urgency
