Greetings of Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine on the Occasion of the Day of the Military Intelligence of Ukraine

September 7, 2019

Dear intelligence warriors! I sincerely congratulate you on the professional holiday!

You are the elite of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, fearless defenders of the native land. Your deed is silent and invaluable for making of strategic decisions in the national security and defence sphere.

Behind the trail of secrecy of your profession, there is a painstaking analytical and intelligence work that does not stop day and night. No one sees this work and has no idea about it, but it is the key to success. Ukraine’s success!

Intelligence is a sophisticated art that Ukrainian warriors sharpen every day in counteracting the Russia’s hybrid attacks. Thanks to your selflessness, wisdom, intelligence and fortitude, we are well aware of the Kremlin’s plans and intentions. And, therefore, we are armed.

Despite the success and already tangible results, much work remains to be done. We have to return Crimea and Donbas. Therefore, great hope is put upon you, the “fighters of the invisible front”.

We also remember the heroes-intelligence officers who perished defending the independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine! Rest in peace…

Gratitude and respect to the veterans of intelligence!

Dear defenders, I wish you good health, prosperity, well-being, faith in our common victory!

God be with you in new tasks!

Oleksandr Danyliuk
