On Independence Day, Lviv Now released its bilingual printed edition in Ukrainian and English. There, in an accessible and concise way, we talk about the 31st year of Ukrainian Independence, in particular, six months of the heroic resistance of our people and defenders. The newspaper explains the way for Ukraine to become a truly modern state and other equally important contexts.

This is the media hub’s tenth printed edition and the fourth bilingual one, published in Ukrainian and English. On its pages, Ukrainian thinkers reflect on the war for Independence, the uniqueness of the Ukrainian language, discuss how we can become a modern state and which ways Ukrainians can contribute to a common victory. Among them are: Ihor Yukhnovskyi – the leader of the first opposition faction in Soviet Ukraine’s Supreme Council, the deputy of four convocations and the head of the Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance; Father Mykhailo Dymyd, whose son Artemiy heroically died in the war; the historian and publicist Yaroslav Hrytsak, as well as the writer and linguist Andrii Sodomora.

Ihor Yukhnovskyi talks why the struggle of Ukrainians is holy, how Ukraine grew politically and what else we need for maturity, self-awareness and education of elites.

«All civilized humanity stood against the Russian Federation. I believe that our struggle is holy: we protect our families, our land,» – he said.

Historian Yaroslav Hrytsak says that we were released in 1991 because of being considered inferior. We have a difficult history: Orthodox civilization, the Russian Empire, communism, and it’s necessary to make a strategy from this and continue to follow the bumpy road with the classic problems of a young democratic state.

Also in the newspaper, you can see short stories from Lviv Now’s video project «On the front line» about those who help Ukrainians win this war, both on the front lines or in the rear.

We will remind you that earlier, with the beginning of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine, Tvoe Misto media hub launched a special project for foreign media called Strong Ukraine, which helps foreigners to better understand Ukraine, its aspirations for freedom and independence, revealing the contexts of the Russian-Ukrainian war and a wider look at our country. We should also add that for the first time, Tvoe Misto released a printed edition in Ukrainian in April 2020. Since then, 9 newspapers have been published by the media hub.
