Abstract: The article deals with the celebration of the 1500th anniversary of Kyiv in 1982. The ideological aspects of this event are considered. Some of the funds that were used to celebrate the 1500th anniversary of Kyiv were unique. For example, it is setting on the Golden Gate cross. The consequences of the celebration canbe observed in our time. The reaction of the Ukrainian Diaspora should also be considered. One of the goals of the jubi ee was the struggle against it, the desire to transfer members of the pro-Ukrainian Diaspora to pro-Soviet or neutral positions. This is primarily the construction of monuments and reconstructed buildings. The celebration was held under the slogan of «Friendship of Peoples», especially since 1982 when the USSR celebrated its 60th anniversary. In addition, to celebrate the other ideological campaigns (“Kyiv as the Cradle of Three Peoples” and the “Reunification of Ukraine with Russia” in Pereiaslov 1654) were held. It is possible to fruitfully explore the Kyiv anniversary by expanding the source base, the components of which are the clerical work of Soviet state institutions and bodies of the Communist Party, publications in the Soviet and foreign mass media, and memoirs. A lot of valuable material can be given by interviewing live participants in celebrations («oral history»).
