The DIU workforce were discussing this with Andrii Pyzhyk, the Head of the Contemporary History Department of the Taras Shevchenko Kyiv National University. The meeting was held on the occasion of the declaration of independence of Carpathian Ukraine.
Drawing parallels between from 80 years ago events and present times, Andrii Mykolaiovych named the declaration of independence of Carpathian Ukraine as an act of singular courage and patriotism which the Ukrainian nation’s elite of that time approved themselves. Before the Second World War when the European politics hoped to appease aggressor, the Ukrainians proudly and courageously declared their right to live on their land. The Heroes of Red Field – the Carpathian Sich men – stand in one line with the defenders of Ukraine near Kruty, with the Heroes of UPA (the Ukrainian Insurgent Army), our present-day defenders who have been protecting freedom and independence of Ukraine in the struggle against the Russian aggression.
During the discussion with the scientist, intelligence officers noted that today’s Ukrainian warriors continue a great case of their great grandfathers. They are fighting for freedom of Ukraine like the heroes of Carpathian Sich. They go with faith in its future, with faith which will lead us to the victory.
