The Day of Remembrance of the Heroes of Kruty

29 january 2023 year

On January 29, Ukraine celebrates the Day of Remembrance of the Heroes of Kruty - Ukrainian students who, at the cost of their lives, delayed the Bolshevik offensive on Kyiv for several days in 1918.

All of them had different origins, most of them took up arms for the first time, but they were united by love for the Motherland, courage and faith in the Ukrainian state.

The Battle of Kruty is a battle for the future of Ukraine, a battle in which the fate of the young Ukrainian state was decided. The feat of the students became a real symbol of heroism and self-sacrifice of the young generation in the struggle for independence and in the modern russian-Ukrainian war.

More than 100 years have passed, but we are still fighting the russian invasion. But we believe that this time will be the last. We have to finish the case of the people who were fighting in Kruty.

Let's remember the heroic feat of fearless youth near Kruty. Sincere gratitude to all who are currently fighting for our victory, the right to live in a free country on their land.
