Among them Vasyl Stus, Ivan Svitlychny, Vyacheslav Chornovil, Iryna Kalynets, Stefaniya Shabatura, Yevhen Sverstiuk, Leonid Pliushch, and others. Radio Liberty presents some unique photographs from the personal archives of the 1972 Vertep members. The Vertep** was organized by Olena Antoniv, doctor, activist and wife of Vyacheslav Chornovil.
