The president noted that the entire country honored memory of the Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred. A great number of monuments have been built and a lot of streets have been renamed.
Head of civil organization "Families of the Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred" Ihor Huryk delivered a speech at the meeting. He outlined problems and laid out proposals on their solution.
"The Revolution of Dignity hasn't been finished for us and for millions of Ukrainians. It will be finished when we achieve the ideals of Maidan - respect to human rights, democracy, transparent government, fair authorities, and justice," Ihor Huryk said.
The attendees urged the president to accelerate the deprivation of judicial immunity and abolish the right to release criminals on bail. "We can't expect fair investigation into the murder of our children and relatives until odious judges who served Yanukovych are still in courts," one of the attendees noted.
