LVIV, Ukraine. For the occasion of the 99th anniversary of the creation of the Western Ukrainian People’s Republic,  a march of glory and a theatrical historical reenactment took place in the Ukrainian city of Lviv.

About 100 city residents and actors from other regions of Ukraine, dressed in the uniform of the soldiers of the Ukrainian Galician Army, marched through the city center, accompanied by military equipment and a brass band of the Lviv State University, performing songs of Sich Riflemen. Sich Riflemen was a Ukrainian unit within the Austro-Hungarian Army during the First World War.
