Monument to Svyatoslav the Brave was opened in MariupolDecember 20, in Mariupol was held the march of the brave “I Come at You!” and the grand opening of the monument to Kniaz Svyatoslav who, in particular, is famous for sending this short message to the enemy before the victorious campaign against the latter. To participate in this remarkable event along with the AZOV regiment and the entire “Azovian” family, to the front-line city, which was liberated by AZOV from the invaders last summer, came the activists of Civil Corps AZOV from all over the country. Over 5 thousand of “Azovians” loudly walked through the streets of Mariupol carrying the banners and torches, burning the flares and shouting the patriotic slogans like “United Ukraine, East and West are together.” To the solemn opening of the monument was timed a concert of Ukrainian bands “Sun Shadow,” “Wide Field,” and “Veremiy.”
The leader of the AZOV movement Andriy Biletsky addresed the soldiers of the AZOV regiment and activists of several dozen branches of Civil Corps with a festive speech: “The distance between us and this monument to Svyatoslav amounts to 1000 years. We have managed to build a great state – Kievan Rus, which fell under the hordes of invaders; then our state was reanimated during the Cossack era and eventually it is restored, but we met a new enemy – Russia, and our future victory is yet to come.”
AZOV continues the tradition of the glorious army of Kniaz Svyatoslav the Brave and guards the borders of Ukraine, ready to smash to pieces any enemy. The monument to Svyatoslav the Brave in Mariupol, passionately welcomed by the local residents, is the best proof that this is the Ukrainian city.
