"We are pleased to welcome the young artists to Lviv and thank them for their creativity, for preserving folk singing and spreading song culture not only in Ukraine but also in the world. We wish prosperity to the team and inspiration to the director, Alina Zinchenko. I would like to thank our wonderful colleague, PhD in Economics, Associate Professor at Poltava University of Economics and Trade, our ally, and PROosvitoria project manager Yanina Barybina for organizing and conducting the cultural event and for the incredible emotions she gave us. Cultural heritage is the wealth of the Ukrainian people, an asset and a manifestation of identity. This is what our soldiers are fighting for, and we are obliged to preserve and pass it on to future generations. I am grateful to everyone who attended the cultural event and thank the leadership of Lviv Polytechnic National University and the Director of the Institute Liubomyr Pylypenko for their support," said Orystlava Sydorchuk, Head of the Ukrainian Women’s League.
