On 12 May 2012 the Ukrainian community of Latvia celebrated the Mother's Day.
Holiday concert, organized by the Association of Ukrainian organizations in Latvia, has brought a lot of young talent. The audience warmly greeted already well-known performers - N. Vonog-Shevchenko, Y.Tyutyunnikov, the ensemble "Karagod", and new groups - for example, the newly formed group "Vesnyanki."
During the concert were performed Ukrainian folk songs and poems dedicated to the most cherished person for each one - mother.
Each participant of the concert banded symbolic yellow and blue ribbon on the birch tree – the tree symbolizes motherhood and the ribbons - children.
