"The whole history of Ukraine is a struggle for its freedom and dignity. During the time of independence, they, in my opinion, became firmly established, as a result of two revolutions. And this must be remembered. We realized that freedom and dignity should be fought. Today, Ukrainians are a strong and bright nation. It's worth being proud of. I congratulate everyone on the occasion of the Day of Goodwill and Freedom, "said the chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov during his communication with journalists.

The ceremony also attended by the military, representatives of local self-government and the public. A minute of silence honored those who gave their lives for the sake of Ukraine.

In particular, photo and documentary exhibitions "The History of the Revolution of Dignity and Freedom", lessons of courage with the involvement of servicemen, members of the Revolution of Virtue and volunteers.

Recall that the holiday of the Day of Prosperity and Freedom is set by the decree of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.

In 2018, Ukrainians celebrate the fifth anniversary of the massive public protest rallies, which began with the Revolution of Dignity (November 2013 - February 2014), as well as the 14th anniversary of the start of the Orange Revolution.
