Symbolism of this country
Bohdan Khmelnytsky was a very important person in Ukraine's history. In 1648 he lead an uprising against Poland making Ukraine independent. He also lead an uprising against the commonwealth and formed two treaties with Russia. He was responsible for Ukraine being a free country.
Souls and bodies we'll lay down, all for our freedom,
And we will show that we, brothers, are of the Cossack nation!
These two lines from their national anthem show their willingness to fight for freedom. #freedomfighters
