May 9, Ukraine marks the Day of Victory over Nazism in World War II.

The commemorative events are held in the capital and other cities of Ukraine on this day.

The Day of Victory over Nazism in World War II was established as a public holiday by the Law of Ukraine “On the Immortalization of Victory over Nazism in World War II of 1939-1945.” Marking the Day of Victory over Nazism implies rethinking World War II events, dispelling the Soviet historical myths, conducting an honest dialogue on the complicated pages of the past.
