«Some time ago it was thought that Ukrainians live according to the rule "it is no business of mine". But after events on Maidan and the beginning of war I saw it’s not true. It’s not like that indeed. And people who died proved it having put their lives. It imposes much greater responsibility. We must behave in the way that their families were sure that they died not for nothing" - said Dmytro Bulatov to those who came to commemorate the memory of heroes of Maidan and ATO.
Ceremony participants put some flowers to memorial boards to students and fellow workers of KPI who perished in the East of Ukraine as well as to heroes of Maidan, namely the graduate of the Faculty of Informatics and Computer Science, Hero of Ukraine, Sergii Bondarev in building №18 and student of the Faculty of Sociology and Law, Hero of Ukraine, Yurii Popravka in the building №19.
