DEFENDER OF UKRAINE DAY
On October 14, Ukraine celebrates Day of the Ukrainian Cossacks, Protection of Mother of God, which was revered by the Cossacks and is still revered by Ukrainians, the anniversary of Ukrainian Insurgent Army, and after the evil and cowardly attacks of the Russian Federation in the East of Ukraine and the occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea – the Day of Defender of Ukraine.
The official introduction of this holiday was final and decisive step from an imposed, hypocritical and cruel communist regime - to the consciousness of being one people, freedom-loving, equal among other peoples of the European community.
A community in which each man is a person, the core value of the state.
A community in which everyone who defended and continues to defend the borders of the state and its values is a hero, respected, protected, shrouded in care at all levels: from restoring of health to returning to a full, successful civilian life.
The uniqueness of the history of our people lies precisely in the unrestrained desire of our ancestors to freedom, despite neither the power of enemies, nor their treachery. We should realize that without the will, without the consolidated patriotic position of all citizens, without the reliable protection of our defenders, we will lose not only our peaceful life, but also our distinctness.
Great, undying gratitude and profound respect for Ukrainian defenders - for all the years of struggle for our land and will!
Strength and inspiration to all defenders! Good health, endurance and unwavering faith in the victory of Ukraine!
GLORY TO UKRAINE - GLORY TO THE HEROES!
