Greetings of the Chief of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine on the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
Dear colleagues, combat sworn brothers!
Please, accept my sincere greetings to you on the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine!
The events in Donbas, as well as the last several years of the contemporary history in general, are evidence of that the Ukrainian army is a powerful force capable to adequately responding to modern challenges and threats, to deter the armed aggression against Ukraine and give it a fitting rebuff.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine are the combat-capable troops, modern weapons and military equipment, a high potential of devoted patriots, people of honour and duty, who are protecting sovereignty, territorial integrity and inviolability of our state.
There is no future without a strong army. It is a real guarantor of our independence and freedom. Ukrainian people are proud of their army!
Even amidst the ongoing Russian aggression, the Armed Forces are being reformed, developed, strengthening their combat capability, implementing NATO standards on the path of further integration of Ukraine towards the Euro-Atlantic area.
Military intelligence as an important element of the security sector has been currently entrusted with many tasks. I am confident, we will perform them with honour!
I thank all of you for professionalism, courage, self-sacrifice and considerable contribution in protection of the country.
I wish everyone good health, optimism and abiding faith in our victory!
Eternal glory to heroes!
Glory to the Armed Forces of Ukraine!
Glory to Ukraine!
Chief of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine
Colonel Kyrylo Budanov
