Falun Dafa (also called Falun Gong) practitioners in Ukraine, Russia and Poland celebrated World Falun Dafa Day on May 13 to commemorate the 27th anniversary of Falun Dafa's introduction to the public, and to wish Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, a happy birthday.
The celebrations in Ukraine were held in Kiev, Kharkiv and Odessa on May 11 and May 12.
Practitioners in Kharkiv were invited to participate in an art performance in a cultural theme park in downtown Kharkiv. They presented a colourful World Falun Dafa Day celebration on stage with a waist drum dance, and an introduction as to how Falun Dafa and traditional Chinese culture has brought change to the world.
Their performance received warm feedback from the audience. Many took pictures and videos of this joyful celebration.
Children learned how to fold paper lotus flowers, and listened to practitioners' explanation about the meaning of the lotus flower in Chinese culture. They were excited to see the dragon dance and wanted to take pictures with practitioners. The sponsor of the event invited practitioners to come again next year.
Practitioners in Kiev also celebrated this special day with a dragon dance, waist drum dance, and exercise demonstration in the busy downtown area on May 12. The performances attracted tourists and local residents who got a chance to learn about the benefits of Falun Dafa, and express their support. A tourist couldn't help saying, “What you are doing is marvellous!”
