One year ago tragic events on Maidan in Kyiv changed Ukraine’s destiny forever. The Heaven’s Hundred paid the highest price – human lives – for the right to choose our own future. Today the Ukrainians continue to defend their freedom and independence. Two days ago the most difficult talks were held in Minsk, where the Presidents of Ukraine, Germany, France and Russia agreed to a ceasefire in Donbass. We invite you to commemorate the Heaven’s Hundred Heroes and all those,who lost their lives in protecting Ukraine from Russia’s aggression.
