Earlier, the Kremlin-controlled administration of Simferopol denied local activists of the Ukrainian Cultural Center to carry out an event on March 9 dedicated to the birthday of the outstanding Ukrainian poet, writer and artist Taras Shevchenko.

Every year on March 9, Ukrainians around the world celebrate the anniversary of the Kobzar birth.
