August 24th is Independence Day of Ukraine.

There was a concert of one of the most famous bands from our country. The band is called Okean Elzy.

In honour of the day, people sang the anthem of Ukraine.

*** Here is a translation below

Ukraine is not yet dead, nor it's glory and freedom,
Luck will still smile on us brother-Ukrainians.
Our enemies will die, as the dew does in the sunshine,
And we, too, brothers, we'll live happily in our land.

We'll not spare either our souls or bodies to get freedom
And we'll prove that we brothers are of Cossacs kin.

We'll rise up, brothers, all of us, from the Sian to the Don,
We won't let anyone govern in our motherland.
The Black Sea will smile yet, grandfather Dnipro will rejoice,
Yet in our Ukraine luck will be high.

We'll not spare either our souls or bodies to get freedom
And we'll prove that we brothers are of Cossacs kin.

Our persistence, our sincere toil will prove it's rightness,
Still our freedom's loud song will spread throughout Ukraine.
It'll reflect upon the Carpathians, will sound through the steppes,
And Ukraine's glory will arise among the people.

We'll not spare either our souls or bodies to get freedom
And we'll prove that we brothers are of Cossacs kin.
