The event was introduced by the vision of a video about Maidan 2013/2014 Events and the participants were able to ask questions and debate about the events and the consequences of the events nowadays in Ukraine.

Also there many books about Maidan events that were published since 2014 were presented.

Here is a summary of the book:

There once was, a very long time ago, a fertile land named Ukraine. Then, a people who loved their country, work and above all God inhabited it: the Ukrainians.

However, their leaders cared little for the people, especially the last one, who was particularly greedy. In the beginning, the people suffered in silence. But one day, the indignant Ukrainians descended upon Maidan square to put an end to the injustice and their unwavering faith in Love led them to victory.

The entire margin of the publisher will be donated by Les Éditions Bleu et Jaune – Tatiana Sirotchouk éditrice to an association devoted to Ukrainian children.
