The awards ceremony was held today, August 28, at the Taras Shevchenko Museum in Kyiv. We would like to remind you that the Stus Prize is awarded for a special contribution to the Ukrainian culture and sustainability of civic position. Thirty years ago, it was founded by a Ukrainian dissident, then head of the Ukrainian Association of Independent Creative Intelligence, Yevgen Sverstiuk.
Since then, about 60 people have won the award. Last year, it was received by President of the Ukrainian Catholic University, Borys Hudziak, and earlier by writer Serhiy Zhadan.
