May 16, 2024, on the Day of Ukrainian Embroidery and Embroidery, associate professor of the Department of Accounting, Analysis and Control
Lyubov Shevtsiv, with the active participation of the students of the UFO-11c group, an educational hour dedicated to this event was held. The students of the group, together with the advisor, got acquainted with the history of the emergence of a special Ukrainian embroidery, which is associated with the Trypil culture of the late Neolithic era. The attention of the students was drawn to the fact that the vyshyvanka is not only a special element of festive national clothing, but also an important part of the culture of the Ukrainian people. Therefore, every Ukrainian should know about the existence of such an event as Vyshyvanka Day, especially during the war with the Russian Federation.
During her speech, the student of the UFO-11c group, Tushnytska Sofiya, said that according to the research of archaeologists, certain elements of embroidery still existed on the clothes of the Scythians who lived in the territory of modern Ukraine before our era. Sofia noted that during the time of Kievan Rus’ they also wore embroidered clothes, and references to the special clothing of the Ruthenians can be found in the records of many travelers. The Ukrainian people have carried the love for embroidery through the ages and preserved the special traditions of its creation. Each region of Ukraine can boast of its unique customs, which are connected with the national ornament on clothes.

The advisor of the group also drew attention to the event of May 18, 2024 – the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Genocide of the Crimean Tatar People, dedicated to the 80s anniversary of the total deportation of the Crimean Tatars from the Motherland by the communist regime, an event that is especially relevant today. In particular, Lyubov Shevtsiv noted that from May 18, 1944, approximately 200,000 Crimean Tatars were deported from their native peninsula, and in a few days the entire nation was deprived of its homeland. For 12 years, the Crimean Tatars had the status of “special immigrants”. According to official data, almost half of the Crimean Tatars died of hunger and disease on the way or in exile. Since 2015, the Ukrainian state recognizes the deportation of the Crimean Tatars in 1944 as genocide. Lyubov Shevtsiv drew attention to the fact that even during the war, on May 15, 2024, a public dialogue “Genocide of the Crimean Tatar people and ways to overcome its consequences” was held in the Holodomor Museum.
Thank you for cooperation UFO-11c.
