The Embassy of Ukraine in the Republic of Poland, the Office of Michał Boni MEP, the Association of Ukrainians in Poland and the “Our Choice” Foundation have the honour to invite you to the meeting commemorating the 5th Anniversary of Euromaidan – the Revolution of Dignity in Kiev, which will take place on November 21, 2018, at 5 p.m. in Nowy Świat Muzyki in Warsaw. EWL S.A. is a partner of this event.
We want this event to become a symbol of solidarity between the citizens of Poland and Ukraine, who will pay tribute to the fallen participants of the peaceful protests on Maidan. The public opposition was caused by President’s Viktor Yanukovych’s decision not to sign the Association Agreement with the European Union. After a brutal attempt to eliminate the protests, the initiative turned into a national revolution, which gave rise to reforms in the Ukrainian state.
