Ukraine is commemorating its 32nd year of independence today! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ It also marks the 547th day fighting Russia’s invasion. A stark reminder that independence isn’t simple or free.

I’ve been a subscriber of the Kyiv Independent since it launched. This is the best way to get direct English language news from Ukraine. Join me with a Kyiv Independent membership to be better informed and support independent journalism in Ukraine.

Today is also good day to read “Everything you didn’t know about Ukraine’s flag”. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦
