Day of Commemoration of the Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred

Ukrainians around the world mark February 20th as Heavenly Hundred Remembrance Day, when over 100 brave individuals, whose lives were tragically cut short in clashes with security forces 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 in 2013. Six years ago, they took the fate of their country in their own hands. Their sacrifice is a reminder of the Ukrainian nation’s eternal aspirations for freedom.

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

Heroes Never Die!
