Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has congratulated Ukrainians on Kyiv Day.

He posted his greetings on Facebook on May 30.

"Kyiv is special. It seems there is no such person who would not have found something of their own here. Cozy streets of Podil that are full of history and wide avenues of 'sleeper' neighborhoods fascinate in their own way," he said.

"But the main thing in Kyiv is that one constantly hears its heartbeat. A heartbeat that charges. If Kyiv were a human being, I would like to just hug him and say today: 'I love you, old man! Happy birthday, Kyiv!'"

Kyiv Day 2021

  • Kyiv Day is marked on May 30, 2021. As was the case last year, the capital city celebrates its day amid quarantine restrictions.
