Several thousands of Cherkasy residents and visitors gathered on the first day of commemorations in the Valley of Roses.
The day was full of events and emotions. One of the most important events was the opening of the monument to fighters for freedom of Ukraine. In addition, members of Cherkasy branch of Civil Corps AZOV received the “Cold Ravine” (an area of the Ukraine known for anti-communist resistance) awards and joined the warrior holiday which began after the musical part of commemorations.
The event ended with the torchlight procession of the Cherkassy residents and all concerned citizens. The column was headed by the activists carrying the flags of the AZOV Civil Corps and regiment.
The torchlight procession lit up the streets and a banner in front of the column with the inscription “AZOV – the descendants of the Cold Ravine warriors.”
