The Odessa region adopted the "Relay of unity", which is devoted to the centenary of the Unification of Ukraine. It began on December 1 in the city of Fastov and will end on January 22 in Kyiv. As part of the action, students of the Odessa Art School named after M. B. Grekova completed one of the sheets of the book "Cathedral Ukraine by the eyes of children", which will be visited in each region. This was reported in the department of culture, nationalities, religions and the protection of objects of cultural heritage of the Odessa Regional State Administration.

"Odessa region became the eleventh, which joined the action. The relay is intended to symbolically unite the whole of Ukraine. Thus, the book "Cathedral Ukraine by the eyes of children" is transmitted from one region to another. On each of its pages - a presentation of a separate area where children depict their vision of collegiality. The sheet of the Odessa region during the day was filled with students of the M. B. Grekov Art School. In the center of the image there is a great sun with rays in the form of towels that reflect every region of Ukraine with its symbolism, "said Olena Oliynyk, Head of the Department of Culture, Nationalities, Religions and the Protection of the Cultural Heritage of the Odessa Regional State Administration.

It should be noted that within the framework of the action the book "Sobornaya Ukraina" will be created, in which each region will present itself in the format "past - present - future". As a result, the regions will report on their projects that have been successfully implemented in recent years, as well as plans for prospective and strategic development of the territory. Upon completion of the action, both books will be presented at Sofia Square on the Day of Ukrainian Unity with the participation of representatives from all regions.

Recall that the Day of Unity is celebrated annually on January 22, the day of the proclamation of the Act of Unification of the Ukrainian People's Republic and the Western Ukrainian People's Republic, which took place in 1919.
