Хіба буває забагато пісень присвячених рідній Україні? Ніколи!
Напередодні святкування Дня незалежності України, приємною несподіванкою стала новина від художнього керівника колективу “Далі” Олени Гісси-Харченка про те, що українська культурна скарбничка поповнилась ще однією українською піснею про Україну.
81 years ago, on August 23, 1939 Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov and Nazi German foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop signed an agreement (officially known as the Treaty of Non-aggression between Germany and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics), now commonly called the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact.

The Act of Declaration of Independence of Ukraine (Ukrainian: Акт проголошення незалежності України) was received by the Ukrainian parliament on 24 August 1991. The Act re-established Ukraine’s state independence.

In response (within a stressful 11-hour extraordinary session), the Supreme Soviet (parliament) of the Ukrainian SSR, overwhelmingly approved the Declaration Act in a special Saturday session.
