Relatives of soldiers killed in Donbas war march in alternative “parade” for Ukraine’s independence

 

Ukraine, War in the Donbas

After the official military parade on the occasion of Ukraine’s 26th independence day finished, Donbas war veterans, volunteers, parents and children of killed soldiers and fallen Euromaidan activists held an alternative parade on Khreshchtyk, the central street of Kyiv. The ‘March of the Unconquered’ aimed to commemorate fallen heroes, to remind that the war in eastern Ukraine is ongoing, and to stress that Ukraine will stand as such people are still ready to fight for it.

Dear readers! We need your help. COVID-19 has hit independent media outlets hard, but even more so in Ukraine, where most outlets are controlled by oligarchs. To make matters worse, several English-language media sources from Ukraine have closed recently. And even worse, this comes at a time of troubling government tendencies and amid a pro-Russian resurgence in Ukraine.  Help keep us online and reporting on the most important of Ukrainian issues for you in these troubling times, bringing the voices of civic society to the forefront of the information war. Our articles are free for everyone to use but we depend on our readers to keep going.  We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget and have no political or state affiliation.
