And to complete our report we would like to dwell upon our little jubilee.

(photo 98)This year it is 15 years since first programme of Voskresinnia Radio was broadcast by transmitter on Vysokyy Zamok in Lviv. The event took place on October 27, 1991. And though our radio's programmes were on air earlier, they were broadcast from abroad, namely by transmitters in Monte-Carlo, while the programmes the programmes themselves were recorded in studio SKTK in Brussels. The state monopoly for air was broken for the first time in Ukraine, And though Voskresinnia Radio was not a radio station in its full meaning, but the voice of the Church legally sounded in the homeland for the first time. This exactly programme was a starting point for Lviv edition office. Already in the next, 1992 year, edition office started producing everyday programmes, and quite soon the transmission range covered the whole territory of Ukraine, which gained its independence. Voskresinnia Radio became a unique phenomenon in Ukrainian air. And this uniqueness was thrice highlighted by Divine Intent. You can judge by yourself. Nongovernmental radio programme sounded for the first time on all-governmental air. At the same time it was not produced in the capital. And to crown everything, it was produced in Lviv! And what is more, besides Lviv production, the programme was created in the studio, which belonged to Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church! We thank God for many years of surveillance, and we are grateful to our friends, workers, authors and listeners.

We especially appreciate many years of support by workers of charity organization «Kirshe in Not» and we pray for health of our sponsors, because our work would not be realized without their generous donations.
