Today, August 27, marks the 164th anniversary of the birth of the famous Ukrainian, outstanding writer and politician Ivan Franko. Without a doubt, Franco’s majestic artistic legacy and his life path inspire Ukrainians to fight and create change.
Ivan Franko, our fellow countryman, was born in the Lviv region in the village of Naguevichi. During my life he went through a great transformation. In work, struggle and politics, he became the leader of his time. However, Franco is timeless. His poetic lines inspire many today, and new generations of scientists, historians and journalists learn from his scientific works.
