The Embassy of Ukraine in Finland invites all interested persons to commemorate the Day of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes, which is annually marked in Ukraine on February 20 in remembrance of the perished heroes of the Revolution of Dignity.
📍 On 21-22 February from 9:00-18:00 a memorial plaque will be placed near the Embassy's building to allow anyone who wishes to light a candle and lay flowers in the memory of the Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred.
📍 21 February at 5:00 pm the Embassy will host the screening of a documentary film Перша Сотня -The First Company
The Story: The Ukrainian Revolution (2013-2014) and the war with Russia in the Donbas are nearing. The film deals with the history of the First Company of the Maidan, which defeated the enemy within and advanced to the frontlines to fight the external enemy. Immersion in the epicentre of events, a frank artistic and civilian view of human relationships against the background of violent social upheaval. Immutable human stories, the collision of charismatic characters, challenges and solutions on the verge of life and death, the search for interaction, the first steps towards the formation of civil society... All of this is summed up by an understanding of the way already travelled and an optimistic view of Ukraine’s future.
