26.08.06 Photos of Ruslana's performance on Independence Day in Kyiv  

22.08.06 “Being patriotic means being in fashion!”
Ruslana had an original way of appealing the public before Independence Day. It is known that according to the old Carpathian traditions, people found out about joyful or sad events due to trembita players, who managed to make alive the voices of the trembita. In such a way, from the far away mountains, they called everyone to come together. In the new century right before the celebration of Independence Day, Ruslana decided to restore that nice tradition. Having raised high above L’viv and Kyiv, she really played the trembita in such a way to call all Ukrainians and the whole world to celebrate Independence Day.

06.06.06 Ruslana's position towards the language issue
The present language situation in our country turned in a way that it threatens all Ukrainian, the Ukrainian language and the Ukrainian culture as the whole. Out of their economic interests certain political forces organize provocations against the integrity of the Ukrainian people and state. An attempt to protect the other languages (in particular Russian) in Ukraine is nothing else, but an ideological war in which we must create our own ideology.
