On February 20, the Embassy of Ukraine hosted a charitable evening to commemorate the Fallen Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred.
The event was co-organized by the Embassy and the U.S. non-profit charitable organization United Help Ukraine. Clergy, civil organizations’ and movements’ activists, members of the local Ukrainian and American communities were in attendance.
Ambassador of Ukraine to the U.S. Olexander Motsyk addressed the guests of the charitable evening with an opening word. He paid tribute to the Heavenly Hundred and those Heroes, who defend our country from Russia’s aggression. The Ambassador highlighted that their feat became the driving force of irreversible democratic transformations in Ukraine. He stressed that Ukraine will remain committed to pro-European choice of its nation despite heavy pressure from the Kremlin. Ambassador Motsyk expressed gratitude to the U.S. Administration and Congress as well as the whole U.S. people for their faithful support to Ukraine.
Varied program of the evening included classical and folk music concert performed by Solomia Gorokhivska (Gerdan), Andrei Pidkivka (Gerdan) and Oksana Skidan, photo exhibition and slide show dedicated to Kyiv’s Maidan and the Heavenly Hundred, silent auction of paintings and helmets from the Maidan.
All funds raised during the evening will go for charitable projects of United Help Ukraine aimed at supporting Ukraine (medical supplies and food for internally displaced persons and residents of the affected areas, Ukrainian counter-terrorism forces and their families).
