A special project «‎Our Independence»‎

A special project dedicated to the main achievements, events and important discoveries of independent Ukraine in a historical retrospect. After all, the face of the state is primarily its people, Ukrainians, their scientific achievements, achievements in politics, sports, art.

The invention of a liquid scalpel and a phasagraph, a kinescope and rays that formed the basis of the modern «X-ray», the design of a tram and the first helicopter, the first space flight, the strongest people of the planet and mighty athletes, Cossacks and kobzars, peaceful revolutionaries, world known craftswomen, the first computer in continental Europe and much more. All this is about the Ukrainians and thanks to the Ukrainians. The indisputable fact is the genius, freedom loving and originality of our people, whose representatives do their work conscientiously every day: behind a microscope in the laboratory, in camouflage on the battlefield, with a scalpel in the hospital or with a pointer in their hand at school. And every day they prove the veracity of the proverb that the Cossack Nation has no end.

30 years of independence flew by like a flash, and enriched our history with a considerable number of new phenomena. If we slow down a little and analyse, we will see that the events of previous centuries have become not only a booster of historical processes – the echo of centuries is the guide of the present. This hypothesis formed the basis of the project.

ICM founder Dmytro Tsarenko: «On the project’s website, we were not only able to tell about 30 outstanding achievements of Ukrainians over 30 years of independence, but also proved that history is cyclical. It is the understanding of cyclical patterns, the focus on progress and respect for the past that teach us how to behave in the future. We hope that our country will only multiply its achievements, and every year we will be able to replenish the national treasury of victories already collected by our Institute».
