Day of Commemoration of the Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred

February 20

Day of Commemoration of the Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred
20 лютого – Українці щороку відзначають День Героїв Небесної Сотні

Ukrainians around the world will mark February 20th as Heavenly Hundred Remembrance Day, in remembrance of over 100 brave individuals, whose lives were tragically cut short in Kyiv on this date in 2014.

This innocent group of protesters – who have been dubbed “The Heavenly Hundred” – had been protesting human rights and fundamental freedom abuses, and the backsliding of Ukraine’s pro-European course beginning in the winter of 2013. Their sacrifice is a reminder of the Ukrainian nation’s eternal aspirations for freedom.

UCCA and the entire Ukrainian American community pay tribute to those brave heroes whose lives were tragically taken during the Revolution of Dignity.

Heroes Never Die!

Вічная Пам’ять!
