It is worth noting that the Day of commemoration of participants of war activities on the territories of other states is traditionally celebrated on February 15.

As we reported earlier, on January 29, Ukraine commemorates the heroes of the Battle of Kruty. The battle took place on Jan. 29, 1918, when a 400 soldiers unit of the Ukrainian forces (300 of them were students) briefly halted the advance of a 4,000 Red Army under Mikhail Muravyov marching towards Kyiv.

This was part of the Ukrainian Revolution 1918 when Ukraine was fighting for its existence against Soviets and Royalists. More than half of the Ukrainian soldiers perished in the unequal battle.
