Sergii Chernov, Chairman of Kharkiv Regional Council, traditionally took part in the flower-laying ceremony to the monument of Great Kobzsr on the occasion of the 206th anniversary of Taras Shevchenko’s birthday, who was a distinguished poet, an artist and a great thinker. Deputies of the Regional Council, the authorities of the regional and city administration, management of establishments and organizations, gentlemen of cloth, socially active members, and representatives of diplomatic mission of other countries joined the event.

While recalling Taras Hryhorovych Shevchenko, the cultural pearl of Ukraine,  Sergii Chernov emphasized that the works by Kobzar is a spiritual foundation of forming the modern Ukrainian nation, a source of national consciousness, a symbol of Ukraine.

The Chairman of the Regional Council stated, “We do not have Great Kobzar and Prophet with us any more already for more than one hundred fifty years, but his poetry in which the primary human values - love and faithfulness, mother’s fate, friendship, devotion to his native land and people - were poetized, is something that we cannot imagine modern life without.”

The event took place next to the most beautiful and original monuments to Taras Shevchenko in the world and was accompanied with music works which are known by every Ukrainian since childhood. The specific holiday atmosphere was created by artists wearing national costumes who cited poems of the national genius in his honor.
