Sumy region give to Ukraine a lot of famous names. Let us remember Poletyka family – fighters for Ukrainian autonomy in the 18 century; let us remember Andrew Potebnya – hero of the 1863 polish uprising against Russian occupation; let us remember his brother Alexander – renowned linguist; let us remember Lazarevsky family – friends of Taras Shevchenko, the people of our science and culture 19 – 20 cent.; let us mention poets Panteleimon Kulish and Paul Grabowski, writers Ivan Bahrianyi and Nicholas Khvylovyj…

Sumy region so rich in talents that even the neighbors supplied them: let us remember Alexander Bezborodko who had served in St. Petersburg to the Chancellor of the Russian Empire, or Paul Rybalko, famous tank commander twice Hero of the Soviet Union, who had been promoted to field marshal in Moskow.

According Sumy pigs, none of these figures are not the figures of national importance.
