"Taras Shevchenko brings everyone, who knows him and reads his poems, the faith in the future, the faith that his nation, his Ukraine, is indestructible," the diplomat stressed.

The video flash mob dedicated to one of the most famous Shevchenko’s poems, Zapovit (Last Will), was also presented during the event.
