Easter is the most important festival in the christian calendar and is celebrated in the Ukrainian orthodox church over a weekend of services.
This one during the day on the Saturday involved moving the symbolic shroud of christ from the body of the church to the altar, changing the altar cloths from black to white and taking painted eggs and paska Easter bread to be blessed and shared.
And tonight there will be an all-night service for the faithful because the Easter service and festivities last the whole weekend
