Ukraine should mark the end of the Second world war on may 8 – along with Europe
This is the opinion of the Chairman of the Ukrainian Institute of national memory Vladimir vyatrovich. He told about it on air of the TV channel ZIK.
He believes the decision to transfer the weekend from 8 to 9 may – a very important step.
“Sorry, not accepted, in my opinion, a very important decision is the transfer of state weekend from may 9 — Victory Day over Nazism on may 8 — the Day of memory and reconciliation,” — said vyatrovich.
He believes that Ukraine should move this holiday to demonstrate their willingness to celebrate it together with Europe. Viatrovych recalled that before the weekend was November 7 – the day of the October revolution that have repeatedly been the reason for all kinds of provocations, and militiamen had to strengthen the patrols.
“And I am convinced that the same will happen if the source will be moved to may 8th. Besides, this way we will be able to give more due attention to those world war II veterans who are still with us. I doubt whether they love speculating on their lives are different kind of anti-Ukrainian forces — the so-called “immortal shelf” — on the streets of Ukrainian cities,” — said vyatrovich.
We will remind, this year in Russia will not arrive leaders of powerful States on may 9.
