Ukrainian defenders have found a rare edition of "Kobzar" by the prominent Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko, dated 1917, among the rubble of a house in Bakhmut, Donetsk region. It is symbolic that the discovery was made on the poet's birthday, March 9.

Ukrainian journalist Yurii Butusov posted a photo on his Telegram channel. He emphasized that the soldiers, who were members of the "Sokil" ("Falcon") public organization before the full-scale invasion, decided to sent the book for restoration as it requires one.

The journalist noted that, unfortunately, it is not known who owns the book, but it won't be lost.

Recall, Taras Shevchenko's poetry is considered the foundation of Ukrainian literature. It has a place for delicate love poetry, political statements, and deep personal experiences. Many of his quotes have become aphorisms and have taken on a new meaning in the time of Russia's full-scale aggression against Ukraine.

Keep fighting — you are sure to win!

God helps you in your fight!

For fame and freedom march with you,

And right is on your side!

("Caucasus")

The earth reborn, with its inhuman,

Brute foes of man for ever gone.

But mothers there will be, and sons—

Aye, here on earth there will be humans!
