Overseas Vietnamese in Ukraine's Kharkov province on Saturday held a ceremony to mark the death anniversary of Hung Kings, the legendary founders of Vietnam, which falls on the 10th day of the third lunar month every year.

Speaking at the ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to Ukraine and Moldova Nguyen Anh Tuan said the event demonstrates the Vietnamese people's fine tradition of drinking water, remembering the source and promotes patriotism among the young generation. He reiterated the Vietnamese Embassy's supports for the overseas Vietnamese community in Ukraine, wishing that they will continue to unite and help each other while preserving Vietnam's cultural identity.
