The President congratulated all the present with the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and emphasized that an officer and a soldier are the main and the most respectable people in Ukraine, because they defend our country and the Ukrainian people.
- You fought the right to be called real Ukrainian elite by your own sweat and blood, life and health, courage and patriotism, - the Supreme Commander-in-Chief said.
The Head of the State has also noted that it is a privilege for him to personally grant the orders to the servicemen that carried out their military duties with dignity, resisting the Russian aggression in the Ukrainian Donbas.
- From the bottom of my heart, I want to wish all, who receive a dwelling today and who will gain it in the future, peaceful sky, cosy home and not to have to give your own life and health, defending Ukraine from the enemy. Ukraine is with you, the dignified sons of the Ukrainian people. I sincerely thank you, frontline soldiers. I sincerely thank the wives and the children for the powerful support which you give to our warriors. You have a tough life, but Ukrainian people bow low to you and honor the heroes, - stated Petro Poroshenko.
