Exclusive interview with the head of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration Igor Rainin agency "Interfax-Ukraine" .
Q: How are the preparations for the May holidays in the Kharkiv region? Is there a threat of sabotage, acts of terrorism in these days?
Answer: The holiday will take place to complete the program, reduce the number of events we do not. It planned 90 events only at the regional level. In addition, events will be held in all localities of the Kharkiv region.
According to the presidential decree, this year we will celebrate for the first time May 8 - Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation. Given the polarization of society, this is the right decision.
We believe that on 9 May need to go instead of the mass festivities to commemorate the people who took part in the hostilities, to honor the memory of those who died. Our ideological backbone - it veterans, volunteers, members of ATU living in Ukraine involved in the fighting in Afghanistan and other military conflicts.
