“The people trust the Ukrainian army,” said the President of Ukraine, speaking to the servicemen in Zhytomyr region. “It is an absolutely right reaction of people to trust its defenders who are defending native land at this difficult time,” the Head of State underscored.
Petro Poroshenko congratulated all Ukrainian servicemen on a remarkable historical event – the creation of a single Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Ukraine, the Unity Council of which took place on December 15 and elected its Primate. “We can defend ourselves and have everything we need for this,” the President of Ukraine said.
The Head of State congratulated the servicemen and their families on forthcoming Christmas and New Year holidays and emphasized: “I want to wish peace to the whole country, because nobody wants peace more than Ukrainians. But I will emphasize once more – peace on the conditions of national security of our state, not peace on the conditions of capitulation offered by some politicians. I believe that the Lord will bring us this long-awaited peace. Glory to the Armed Forces and Glory to Ukraine”.
