Hryhorii Skovoroda is a philosopher, a writer of a great depth, an extraordinary person that every European culture would be proud of.

He was born in the village Chornukhy (Poltava region) and studied at the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. Hryhorii Skovoroda preferred personal spiritual freedom - practiced asceticism and travelled a lot.

The artistic legacy of Hryhorii Skovoroda are philosophical works, collections of songs and fables ("The Garden of Divine Songs", "The Fables of Kharkiv"). Skovoroda's sayings, devoted mainly to ethics, gained a great popularity: "Love arises from love...", "Do the things you were born to do...", " is the movement of the soul, and life is the movement..." etc. The philisopher’s saings were geathered into numerous collections of aphorisms.

Hryhorii Skovoroda saying "The world chased me but could not catch me" has become especially relevant today, when he was "not caught" by the Russian aggressors either. On May 6, 2022, the russian military fired a missile directly at the building of the Hryhorii Skovoroda National Literary Memorial Museum in the village Skovorodynivka (Kharkiv region), where the thoughtful man lived and worked during the last years of his life. Although the building was badly damaged and burned inside, authentic objects of the museum fund related to the life and work of Hryhorii Skovoroda have been preserved. A statue of the philosopher has also survived.

The postage block, dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the birth of Hryhorii Skovoroda, is a charity issue of Ukrposhta. The funds collected will be forwarded by Ukrposhta to the reconstruction of the Hryhoriі Skovoroda National Literary Memorial Museum
