Video of congratulations on the Day of embroidered shirt from representatives of the Ukrainian diaspora and the Armed Forces of Ukraine!

On May 21 we celebrate a wonderful holiday – Vyshyvanka Day !

We want to creatively greet everyone with the help of a video shot by the coordinators of All-Ukrainian initiative “Active Community” of Khmelnytsky Yulia Mazur and Serhiy Tolstikhin. In 2019, they toured 22 European countries within the framework of the project entitled “80 days REtrip”, promoting ecotourism and communicating with members of the Ukrainian diaspora. And on the eve of the holiday, they organized a global flash mob “Embroidered Chain” and collected greetings for Ukrainians in parts from around the world!

Today, the embroidered shirt is worn not only in Ukraine, but also by the Ukrainian diaspora: Sweden, Germany, Latvia, America, Denmark, the Netherlands…

The video ends with a greeting from the Armed Forces of Ukraine: “We put on a uniform here so you can wear an embroidered shirt there.”

So let’s wear it every day, not just for the holiday!

Friends, did you wear an embroidered shirt today?

Note. The mission of the AI “Active Community” is to achieve prosperity through the democratic development of Ukrainian communities. The goal for 2025: to activate and involve at least 1% of citizens in decision-making and promotion of reforms in Ukraine on a systemic basis for the well-being of Ukrainian communities. The initiative was created within the activities of the Institute “Respublica”. We work to increase the conscious activity of citizens.
