Independence Day Parade
Khreshchatyk (vul. Khreshchatyk, Kyiv)
This year's parade of the Ukrainian military will show some new elements from history: the flag of the Bohdan Khmelnytsky First Ukrainian Cossack Regiment that had been featured in the parade on Khreshchatyk in 1917, as well as the symbols of the Ukrainian National Republic. The orchestra will play the Zaporizhian March for celebrations composed by Mykola Lysenko that had been used by the UNR Army. Units from nearly 10 NATO member-states and Georgia will join the Ukrainian military in the parade.
