On February 26, 2012, the Embassy of Ukraine to the Hellenic Republic once again hospitably opened its doors to the children of the Ukrainian community in Greece. The occasion was the traditional celebration with its countrymen in Greece of the Ukrainian folk feasts. This time - of the joyous ritual feast of “Masliana”.
Each song and dance performed by the young Ukrainians to drive away winter and invite spring was met by the numerous guests with sincere applause.
After the show, consistent with the ancient Masliana tradition, performers and guests feasted on the ritual foods.
This cultural and educational event, which evidenced the devotion of young Ukrainians in Greece to the age-old traditions of the Ukrainian people, has become a wonderful holiday gift to the "Masliana" for the parents of the performers, representatives of the Ukrainian community in Greece, Ukrainian Embassy staff members and their children.
