As part of the celebration of the Day of Dignity and Freedom, a master class on making trench candles for soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was held at the Panas Myrnyi Literary Memorial Museum in Poltava. The event was led by Ludmyla Teimurazian, a Poltava citizen, volunteer, public figure, who, during the open military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, independently produced and handed over 1,000 trench candles to the soldiers on the front lines.
Trench candles help our defenders to keep warm in winter, illuminate shelters and even cook food in the field on the front lines. Also, trench candles are used for lighting and drying clothes in the trenches. Such a candle is not afraid of moisture and can burn for 7-8 hours and is completely ecological.
Students and teachers of the Poltava Vocational College of Oil and Gas of the National University "Poltava Polytechnic named after Yurii Kondratiuk" took part in the master class, in addition to museum employees.
