“We will begin the celebration of the Ukrainian State Day. We consider it the beginning of Kiev – the capital of Kievan Rus’, which can be considered the place where it all began,” Zelensky announced. The holiday will be celebrated on July 28 – the day of the baptism of Kievan Rus, when this state of the Eastern Slavs officially accepted Christianity.
