President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, his wife and public activists prayed in St. Michael Cathedral on the "Night of Memory" - action dedicated to the anniversary of crackdown and severe beating of students on Maidan.
"I couldn't but come to St. Michael's Cathedral with my wife this morning. A year ago, when special units were beating and killing peaceful students on Maidan, this Temple became the first sanctuary for the injured. Consequently, it became one of the main centers and a symbol of the Revolution of Dignity. These events will remain in my heart forever," the President said after the prayer.
The action "Night of Memory" was held at night, November 29-30, on Maidan Nezalezhnosti near the Monument of Independence. It was dedicated to the anniversary of crackdown of students' Euromaidan and organized by the Night Watch of Maidan and the Agency for the Image of Ukraine.
Famous Ukrainians from all over the world, clergy, foreign diplomats, cultural figures, journalists, civil activists and students who had been witnesses of that dreadful night have been delivering speeches on the stage the whole night. The action ended in the morning with the common prayer in St. Michael's Cathedral.
