A group of flag bearers in new ceremonial dress appeared for the first time with the flag of the First Ukrainian Cossack Regiment named after Bohdan Khmelnytsky, who participated in a parade on Khreshchatyk Street in 1917. The military flag of the Third Iron Rifle Division of the Ukrainian People's Army was also carried during the parade.
The military parade was attended by ten units from different countries (Britain, Georgia, Canada, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, the United States, Latvia, Romania, and Estonia), nine of which are members of the North Atlantic Alliance. Foreign partners, representatives of defense agencies and 11 delegations from the defense ministries of the partner countries (Georgia, Lithuania, Latvia, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Turkey, Montenegro, Estonia, the United States, and Britain) have been invited to the festivities.
The combined brass band performed a Zaporizhian March for solemn military events, written by composer Mykola Lysenko and used by the Army of the Ukrainian People's Republic.
