Vyshyvanka Day Celebrated In Ankara

(MENAFN- UkrinForm) The Ukrainian community in Ankara celebrated Vyshyvanka Day today, with diaspora residents dressed in embroidered shirts gathering in the Ukrainian Park, where trees from Ukraine were planted last year.

This was reported by an Ukrinform correspondent.

"With this joint event, we emphasise how this important day - Vyshyvanka Day - unites us all together, all Ukrainians in many parts of the world - whether they were thrown there by good fortune or because of war. And we are all united in putting on this Ukrainian code... In Ukraine, people wear vyshyvanka today under body armour, under uniforms, under suits - and every day they stand up and win on their front," said Ambassador of Ukraine to Turkey Vasyl Bodnar.
