Ukriform | Zelensk* opens Alley of Courage near Verkhovna Rada, 23 Aug
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky took part in the opening ceremony together with President of Poland Andrzej Duda, whose name was the first to appear on the Alley, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Today I want to open the Alley of Courage in the presence of President of Poland Andrzej Duda. The name of President of Poland Andrzej Duda will always be on this alley. It is a symbol of courage, a symbol of friendship, a symbol of support for Ukraine when it is really needed," Zelensky said.
