NATIONAL ANTHEM DAY OF UKRAINE

The national anthem of Ukraine is the song "Ukraine's glory and will are not dead yet" with lyrics by Pavel Chubynsky and music by Mykhailo Verbytskyi.

Officially, its musical edition was approved by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on January 15, 1992.

And on March 6, 2003, the parliament adopted the Law of Ukraine "On the National Anthem of Ukraine".

For reference. Anthem translated from Greek means a festive song and is one of the symbols of any state, identifying it at international gatherings, forums, and sports competitions.

The origins of its creation date back to 1862, when Serbian students studying at Kyiv University sang a patriotic song at one of the parties of Pavel Chubynsky, an ethnographer, folklorist and poet. Chubynsky liked her very much. He suddenly went into another room, and after half an hour he came out with the finished text of the song "Ukraine is not dead yet", which was immediately sung to the Serbian motif.

The first public performance took place on March 10, 1865 in Przemyśl as the final number of a concert dedicated to Taras Shevchenko. Starting from the mid-1860s, the song "Ukraine is not dead yet" began to spread first in the western Ukrainian lands, and later also in the Dnipro region and in places where Ukrainians live compactly - in Canada and the USA.

HAPPY HOLIDAY - UKRAINE!
