Glory to Ukraine - Victory Day video goes viral
05 May, 2015
A Ukrainian nongovernmental organization released two patriotic social advertisements dedicated to Victory Day on May 8. The videos gained popularity at once.

The videos come as a response to Russian propaganda that accuses Ukraine of sympathizing with Nazism and betraying the memory of World War II.

In one of the videos, "Grandfather," a young Ukrainian soldier, calls his veteran grandfather with congratulations on Victory Day. Afterwards, soldiers goes into battle. In the end, the slogan shows up: "We remember, we are
proud, we will win."

Both videos are in Russian with Ukrainian subtitles. In the finale of the “Grandfather” video, the World War II veteran played by an actor says "Glory to Ukraine" to his grandson, also in Russian.

The ads were produced by Tabasco advertising company and Lime Lite Studio for the Information Resistance NGO. Directed by Israeli director Eli Sverdlov, the two videos gained 1 million views in just two days since the release date on April 27.
