Independence Day of Ukraine

After facing two World Wars and later lots of political turmoil, Ukraine got their independence from the Soviet Unions on the 24th of August, 1991. The Independence Day of Ukraine was a hard fought battle with the constitution being adopted nearly five years after its independence.

Hundreds of thousand Ukrainians organized a human chain for Ukrainian independence in memory of the 1919 unification of Ukrainian People's Republic and West Ukrainian National Republic on January 1990. The conservative Communist leaders of Soviet Union even attempted a coup to remove Gorbachev and to restore Communist party power in August 1991 but failed. In response to this the Ukrainian parliament adopted the Declaration of Independence of Ukraine in which the parliament declared Ukraine as an independent democratic state on 22nd August 1991.

Even though final independence for Ukraine was achieved in 1991 with the dissolution of the USSR, democracy remained intangible as the legacy of state control and endemic corruption stalled efforts at economic reform, privatization, and civil liberties. Ukraine's Independence Day is a special day for all the citizens big and small. On this Independence Day of Ukraine adults don't go to their jobs, and children don't attend school. Different types of social activities are prepared by the Municipal where people enjoy to their fullest. While children can enjoy a big circus that is located in the center of the city, during the day people go to the free markets where they can buy anything and everything they need. It could be just a bouquet of flowers, a CD player, or a car. However the best part of Ukrainian Independence Day is the evening fireworks which are just amazing to watch. The young people go to parties to continue celebrating and Independence Day of Ukraine is said to be the happiest holiday for them.
