On the eve of the Day of Journalists and the Day of Publishers, a joint action took place of journalists and local officials who planted trees and named them a “Walk of Peace.” This was reported in the June 4 Volyn Regional State Administration.

“On the occasion of the holiday for media workers, publishers, booksellers and government officials, trees were planted near the Lutsk Jurisprudential Lyceum of Heavy Physical Training,” – reported the Volyn Regional State Administration.

RSA Chapter Gregory Buchanan said that the “measure was meant to unite the Volyn media people, publishers, booksellers, all masters of words and demonstrate throughout Ukraine that we are–one people.”

“Let this Walk of Peace be a symbol of political tolerance, uniting East and West Ukraine, the desire of our people for peace and tranquility in the state. I hope that these trees will bring comfort and peace. We plant them with the dream of peace in our land, which has already suffered many losses,” – he stressed.

Participants in the action expressed the hope that such an action will become traditional and proposed to put in an orchard next year.
