Ivan Franko National Academic Drama Theatre supports the Ukrainian Army

A decision to support the army was made by the theatre troop unanimously, informs the press centre of the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine. “To open the new season we are going to perform Taras Shevchenko’s Nazar Stodoliya – it is a very symbolic play for us. This first play will not only be dedicated to Ukrainian soldiers who stand sentinel to protect peace and defend the borders from an enemy; we are trying to support them financially”, said the General Manager of the theatre, Mikhail Zakharevich. They say in the theatre troops, that they cannot ignore the complicated situation in Ukraine; this step will be the sign of their patriotic position. The artists know that this money will not resolve the existing problem on a greater level; however, they can at least purchase and hand over additional ammunition to support soldiers. It is worthwhile noting that this initiative is not the only patriotic step of Ivan Franko theatre. Thus in July this year the staff of the theatre transferred their common one-day wages in support of Ukrainian soldiers – UAH 85,541. Similar initiatives will be continued; Franko theatre calls for support from their colleagues from other Ukrainian theatres.
