"The exhibition is dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the Ukrainian independence and consists of three parts that show the important events. The first part consists of material documents and exhibits depicting the struggle for independence of Ukraine, in the second part there are Maidan events, the third part is dedicated to the items which are found at the battlefields in the East," said Vladimir Pipash, an employee of the Regional Local Lore Museum named after T. Legotskiy, Chairman of "Prosvita"Transcarpathian Regional Association named after T. Shevchenko.
"Since September 2014 our organization has been engaged in search and return of the bodies of the deceased defenders of Ukraine. Unfortunately, now, there are huge difficulties about search at the uncontrolled territory what is very annoying. After all, the further is, the more deceased soldiers are whom Ukraine will not return. It is very important to show the truth, especially to new generation, and I am sure that our youth and students are the future of our country", said Aleksandr Rusin, volunteer of "Black Tulip".
