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.
