The 10th anniversary of honoring the memory of the university student, the hero of the heavenly hundred – Roman Huryk

On February 20, Ukraine marks the 10th anniversary of the Day of Remembrance of the Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred. It was on these days during the Revolution of Dignity that the confrontation between the Ukrainian people and the then regime reached its peak.

From February 18 to February 20, the largest number of people died on the Maidan – 78 people; after February 20, more than 20 protesters died of injuries. All of them are honoured in the memorial of the fighters for Ukrainian independence – the Heavenly Hundred.

At Vasyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University, people once again gathered near the memorial Obelisk dedicated to students and teachers who died in the struggle for Ukraine’s independence, to pay their respects to the eternally young student of the Faculty of Philosophy – Roman Huryk.

The event was attended by the university rector Ihor Tsependa, representatives of the rector’s office, teachers, students and employees, Roman’s family, in particular mother Iryna Huryk, as well as media representatives.
