Getting Ukraine independence was a very difficult way for the Ukrainian people. At every stage of their lives, Ukrainians fought various threats to their existence. Many of the Ukrainian writers and poets wrote about this in their works:

Свою Україну любіть. Любіть її…Во врем’я люте. В останню тяжкую минуту За неї Господа моліть. («Чи ми ще зійдемося знову?..»)

Т. Шевченко

«А ви думали, що Україна так просто. Україна — це супер. Україна — це ексклюзив. По ній пройшли всі катки історії. На ній відпрацьовані всі види випробувань. Вона загартована найвищим гартом. В умовах сучасного світу їй немає ціни.»  

(Ліна Костенко)

The first decisive steps were taken on July 16, 1990. The Supreme Soviet of the Ukrainian SSR adopted a resolution "On the Day of Proclamation of Independence of Ukraine": "

Taking into account the will of the Ukrainian people and its eternal desire for independence,
Confirming the historical significance of the adoption of the Declaration on State Sovereignty of Ukraine on July 16, 1990,
The Supreme Soviet of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic decides:
Consider the day of July 16 as the Day of Proclamation of Independence of Ukraine and annually celebrate it as the state national holiday of Ukraine.

June 18, 1991, the relevant amendments were made to Article 73 of the Labor Code of the Ukrainian SSR, as a result of which a list appeared on the list of holidays: "July 16 - Independence Day of Ukraine".

Since on August 24, 1991 the Supreme Soviet of the Ukrainian SSR adopted the Act of Declaration of Independence of Ukraine, which on December 1, 1991 was confirmed by the people at the All-Ukrainian referendum, it became necessary to change the date of the Independence Day celebration. On February 20, 1992 the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted a resolution "On the Day of Independence of Ukraine". It says:

Taking into account the will of the Ukrainian people and its eternal desire for independence,
Reaffirming the historical significance of the adoption of the Act of the Proclamation of Independence of Ukraine on August 24, 1991,

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine decrees:

1. Consider the day of August 24 as the Day of Independence of Ukraine and annually celebrate it as a state national holiday of Ukraine.

2. Decree of the Verkhovna Rada of the Ukrainian SSR "On the Day of Proclamation of Independence of Ukraine" of July 16, 1990 was considered invalid.

On June 5, 1992, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine decided: in the first part of Article 73 of the Labor Code of Ukraine, the words "July 16 - Independence Day of Ukraine" shall be replaced by the words "August 24 - Independence Day of Ukraine". Therefore, since 1992 the Independence Day of Ukraine is celebrated annually on August 24.

On Independence Day, sincerely your Shadow Theater Delight.
