 Activists plant 180 cedars in Dnipro City in memory of fallen Ukrainian soldiers. PHOTOS

180 cedars have been planted along the Memorial Alley outside the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration building in Dnipro City.

As reported by Censor.NET citing the regional council's press service, the trees personify Ukrainian soldiers who perished while defending the country's independence. They were planted by the fallen servicemen's parents, friends, companions-in-arms, regional state administration employees, IDPs, and schoolchildren.

Mother of a deceased serviceman Svitlana Kotsiar said: "I lost my son in a fierce battle in the country's east. Ihor was only 20. He was keen on living and was a real patriot. I remember him telling me: "We are now making Ukraine's new history and I'm going to get my name mentioned in it." And he actually got, but posthumously. The tree I am planting symbolizes his soul. I am happy this Alley of Memory is being created in the city."
