The National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy received a digital copy of the historical declassified documents of the Soviet era (1918 to 1991) from the Archives of the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU – СБУ) at a presentation ceremony which took place on March 18. The transfer of previously secret NKVD-KGB (People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs – Committee for State Security) files is regarded as a remarkable event and illustrates the need for transparency and the search for a shared historical narrative.
The official ceremony took place at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, with the participation of Volodymyr Vjatrovych – former Director of the Archive of the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU), Serhiy Kvit – President of the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Tetiana Yaroshenko – Director of Kyiv-Mohyla Library, renown academics Volodymyr Panchenko and Roman Mycyk, and many researchers, faculty members and members of the media.
