The 1917-1921 Ukrainian Revolution began amid revolutionary upheavals which took place all over the Russian Empire in March 1917. Its main driving force was the Ukrainian people and the political elite, which had evolved from the ideas of political autonomy and federation to realizing their own state independence. For two days, the NGO All-Ukrainian Initiative organized solemn events, dedicated to the commemoration of two participants in the 1917-1921 Ukrainian Revolution, who fought for Ukraine’s independence in the 20th century, in villages of Korop and Ichnia Districts of Chernihiv Region. Those are Fedir Dudka, who was born in the area, public officer of the Ukrainian People’s Republic and the Ministry for Land Affairs of the UPR; and Serhii Kachura, an activist of the Ukrainian Central Council and a fighter for Ukraine’s independence.

The aim of the event is to discuss thoroughly the impact of the Ukrainian Revolution on the follow-up development of the entire state, analyze the consequences of the Revolution and to put forward proposals to enhance communication situation in Ukraine.
