New edition of the book of Oksana Zabuzhko “Shevchenkiv MIF of Ukraine” presented on March 21 at the Metropolitan cultural complex “Mystetskyi Arsenal”. The relevance of Shevchenko’s works and the debate around its image, which grew into a “battle Shrine” said Oksana Zabuzhko, Yuri Makarov and Rostyslav Semkiv. The presentation was attended by the Minister of culture Yevhen Nyshchuk. A leading scene of the Euromaidan reminded of the symbolic coincidence of Shevchenko’s days with key events of the Ukrainian revolution of dignity.

– How coincided with the 200th anniversary of Shevchenko with the tectonic tremor on the Maidan of 2013-2014-the anniversary year of Taras Shevchenko. And if we note that according to the old style which was two weeks ago and it was Yanukovych’s flight from the country. Not random if it was the situation?, – said Yevhen Nyshchuk.

The Minister recalled his recent visit to the celebration of Shevchenko’s days in Cherkasy oblast.

Go Kano and see the fantastic building, the new. And I say: “Mr. Minister, look, this is the Home of culture.” I said, “Let’s go”. – “Not working”. “How?” Externally one of the finest buildings among the Houses of culture. “Not running from 2014 year.” Ask him what happened. “Well, there is not introduced, there is still something. And you know how it was built? It’s on the 200th anniversary of Taras Shevchenko was preparing Putin’s visit to Ukraine. There are documents”.

That is, in this 200th anniversary should have been held there for the signing. I said that Nazarbayev had planned there, but do not know how it is. But Putin, Yanukovych was a beautiful Palace, the money is then issued. A lot of money on the entire infrastructure of the Museum.

Prepared in this Shrine is obviously a disgraceful signing. Not have protested if Taras against it? Obviously, so much that protested and we. Therefore, this protest should be us.”
