Ukraine to host Days of Belarusian Culture in 2019

MINSK, 5 July (BelTA) – The Days of Belarusian Culture will take place in Ukraine in 2019 and will be similar to the Days of Ukrainian Culture that are ongoing in Belarus, Culture Minister Yuri Bondar said before the solemn opening ceremony of the Days of Ukrainian Culture at the Palace of the Republic in Minsk on 5 July, BelTA has learned.

“Such large-scale cultural events are held in line with international agreements. They include Days of Culture that are based on the principle of mutuality. I am very glad about the scale of the ongoing event. The Days of Ukrainian Culture take place not only in Minsk, but also in Gomel and Alexandria. We will return the visit next year. We will discuss our plans with the Ukrainian side taking into consideration the schedule of concert venues and possibilities of our partners,” Yuri Bondar said.

The Days of Ukrainian Culture were officially inaugurated at the Palace of the Republic in Minsk on 5 July. The concert featured the National Honored Academic Dance Ensemble named after Pavlo Virsky, People's Artist of Ukraine Ivo Bobul, Honored Artist of Ukraine Lenara Osmanova, Zlata Ohnevych, Tina Karol, Oleg Vinnik, Luiku band, and Hetman Quartet. Ukraine’s arts and crafts were on display in the lobby of the Palace of the Republic.

A big concert program featuring popular artists from Ukraine will be one of the biggest draws of the Kupala Night Festival (Alexandria Gathers Friends) this year. On 7 July visitors to the festival will have a chance to get familiar with Ukraine’s traditional arts and crafts. The next day, 8 July, will see an exhibition performance of an equestrian theater and a big concert. The Ukrainian artists will also present a big program in the Gomel Public Cultural Center on 10 July.
