Dovzhanska Fira will take place with some reservations
In connection with the day of mourning announced on 15.06.2014, the organizers of the Dovzhansky Fira festival ask the concert participant to exclude from the program cheerful song, replacing them with patriotic, anti-war or civil ones. Additionally, a minute of silence will be announced and a prayer service for the victims on the Ukrainian-Russian front will be held. This was announced by Transcarpathian poet, activist Vasyl Kuzan on his page in Facebook.
"At all times, song helped our people to survive in the fight and defeat the enemy. We hope that our festival will give fortitude of our soldiers and help us all to win the Russian invaders, defeating aggression, hatred and dislike for our country and Ukrainian free nation!" - the message states.
Recall, the ethnographic festival "Dovzhanska Fira", dedicated this year to the 631th anniversary of the first mention of the village of Dovhe, was planned and announced in advance.
