The Defense Day of Pakistan was celebrated in the Hall of Receptions on 22 Grushevskogo St. in Kyiv on Sept. 6, hosted by the Embassy of Pakistan. The day commemorates soldiers who defended Pakistan in the 1965 war with India in a territorial dispute over Kashmir. The day also more broadly honors “the spirit of national cohesion and determination to defend the country from all sorts of aggressions,” according to the Pakistan Embassy in Kyiv.
