KHUST— On 14 March 2009, Ukrainian President Victor Yushchenko attended a mass in honour of the heroes of Carpathian Ukraine. The service, which marked the 70th anniversary of the proclamation of the Carpathian Ukraine, took place at the Greek Catholic Cathedral of the Holy Ascension in Khust (Transcarpathian Region). President Yushchenko presented several awards as well as a Ukrainian passport to the Apostolic Administrator of the Mukachiv Greek Catholic Eparchy, Milan Shashik.
By The Way: For those of you who actually missed the March 15, 1939 declaration of a Carpatho-Ukrainian nation by the Greek Catholic Ruthenian Monsignor Avgustin Voloshyn I have included some of the film clips I found in my attic of the event. Happy 70th Anniversary of this great event:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKMxT8Jw9uA&feature=channel_pagehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxSa4lel1wQ&feature=channel_page
