With such a call, he made a meeting of Parliament. Paruby said that he was unpleasantly surprised by the decision of the Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelensky to cancel the parade on Independence Day, he added that it was not for the president to decide whether to be or not to be a parade.
The speaker urged all those who fought for the independence of the country, veterans, military, volunteers, to go to Kiev Khreshchatyk on August 24 and parade down the main street of Ukraine.
The first vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Irina Gerashchenko, also spoke in favor of the parade. She wrote on Facebook that the cancellation of the Independence Day parade is a “fat, strategic minus.”
According to her, the parade was needed and the military, and civil. The first is to proudly walk along the main avenue of the country and show power, the second is to see how the Ukrainian army is being modernized.
Earlier, the President of Ukraine, Vladimir Zelensky, canceled the parade and offered to pay bonuses to servicemen instead. According to him, 300 million hryvnias or about 11.5 million dollars will be allocated for these purposes. Zelensky also stressed that independence will be celebrated on August 24 in Ukraine, but the heroes will be honored in a new format.
