Honoring the heroes of the Heavenly Brigade


Among those paying tribute to the heroes of the “Nebesna Sotnia” on February 20 were Dr. Borys Buniak and Lida Buniak of Fayetteville, N.Y., who were on a visit to Kyiv, where they met with Dr. Ulana Suprun, Ukraine’s acting minister of health, as well as representatives of various charitable organizations to see how the Ukrainian Medical Association of North America (of which Borys Buniak is president) could help with humanitarian aid, medical reform, educational exchanges, psychological services and rehabilitation programs.

On this page, Dr. Buniak shares his moving photos of the reverence shown by the people of Ukraine at memorial events for the “Heavenly Hundred.” Ms. Buniak underscored on her Facebook page: “…We pray for those who sacrificed themselves for our country, for our culture, for our nation and for all Ukrainians. The Revolution of Dignity continues in all our hearts.”
