On January 22, 2007 in Ukraine the ceremonial arrangement will take place on occasion of 88th anniversary of declaration of Unification Act between Ukrainian People’s Republic (UNR) and West Ukrainian People’s Republic (ZUNR).

The President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko signed the correspondent decree today.

The President charged the Government to work out and submit for consideration an arrangement plan on celebration of Unity day in 2007 within ten days.

Ukrainian society marked the Unity day between Ukrainian People’s Republic and West Ukrainian People’s Republic on January 22, 1990, when people gathered in a line of many kilometers around the cities.

On January 22, 1919 at the Sofiivska square the Unification Act was declared. On its ground ZUNR was a part of UNR as a west region. But under political circumstances their authorities continued to act independently.

UNR was proclaimed by the third Universal of the Central Rada on November 20, 1917 in federative relation with Russia. Sovereignty of UNR was proclaimed on January 22, 1918 by the fourth Universal.

ZUNR was created when on October 19, Ukrainian national Rada in Lviv declared Ukrainian State on the ethnic territories of Halychyna, Bukovyna and Transcarpathian.
