On the Day of Constitution of Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy urged citizens to become participants of the flashmob on the knowledge of the Basic Law. Every Ukrainian must read the Constitution, as stated by the President.

"I really want us to love the Day of Constitution not only because it is another day off when one can go to the countryside for a picnic. Therefore, let's all promise ourselves to know our Constitution, and most importantly - observe and respect it. For this purpose, I suggest a flashmob to the whole country. Shoot a short video and tell about one of the articles of the Constitution of Ukraine," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in a video address on the occasion of the national holiday.

The President himself cited the third article of the Constitution, which states that people, their lives and health, honor and dignity, inviolability and security are recognized the highest social value in Ukraine.

"Join the flashmob. Hashtag is #myfavouritearticle. Everyone willing is welcome to join," the Head of State said.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy also told about the initiative to create a "Constitution for the Youngest", launched by "Osnova" publishing group.

"I think it's really cool to make a Constitution for children that will be interesting to them," the President concluded.
