Flashmob ‘Music of warriors’ became the highlight of this year’s campaign ‘Europe Days in Ukraine’.
‘Ode to joy’ – official EU anthem was played in 6 Ukrainian cities simultaneously. Performance of ‘Ode to joy’ in Kirovograd, Ivano-Frankvsk, Lviv, Mykolaiv, Chernivtsi and Kherson had an aim to demonstrate erudition of Ukrainian militants to European Community.
In addition, the choice of this tune was a symbolic visualization of Ukraine’s choice for future.
