This year, about 400 people wearing Ukrainian traditional embroidered shirts have attended Kyiv’s Vyshyvanka March on May 27.
The yearly rally is a part of the Days of Kyiv – this weekend Ukraine’s capital celebrates its 1,535th anniversary.
Participants, young and old, met near the Golden Gates monument, sang Ukraine’s anthem and walked down to Khreshchatyk Street, to Maidan Nezalezhnosti Square, and to Yevropeyska Square. Some people brought their pets, also dressed in vyshyvankas.
