Think of Unity Apr 13, 2017
Unity Cossack is a brand new monument that appeared in Southern Market in Lviv. It was unveiled on Independence Day of 2014. The legendary Cossack fulfills the desire to the Unity of Ukraine. To make this desire true, you have to sit on his knees, touch his sword and think of the unity of Ukraine.

They say that once upon a time there lived an old Cossack, who was a sorcerer like many of talented Cossacks in old times. One day this Cossack met a group of young Cossacks, who were roaming aimlessly after the abolition of Zaporizhian Sich (the Free Cossacks’ State). He ordered the proud warriors to throw their swords into one pile, and with his look the old Cossack smelted those swords into one big saber, that no Cossack could raise for years.

"There will be an unknown night among the mighty knights,- said the old Cossack,- This sword will be light like a feather in his hands. He shall win freedom with this sword, and only then the old Cossack’s Mother Ukraine shall smile joyfully "…

So, old Cossack turned into a stone statue, with a saber in his hand, waiting for a knight who could raise that sword and glorify Ukraine all over the world and for all ages. And the name of the Cossack who can do it is Unity.

Therefore, the task of every Ukrainian is to sit on the knees of the old Cossack sorcerer and to think about the unity of Ukraine.
