Georgian violinist Lisa Batiashvili travelled to Ukraine to perform during the country's Independence Day celebrations. She commented that playing at Ukraine's Independence Day ceremony "is a very special for all of us, for the musicians, for people in Ukraine, for me, particularly. My country Georgia has also the Independence Day on May 26. So, I know exactly, how important this day is for all the former Soviet Union republics. In a way, this is a symbolic day for future, because it is not where we have stopped, but we are going further. It is a great honour for me to be part of this very special kind of concert. Ukrainian people are very peaceful".
