Dear servicemen of the Ukrainian Armed Forces!
I sincerely congratulate you on your professional holiday!
Today, I can truly say our Armed Forces are reborn, robust, and invincible.
Despite the decades of destruction of the army, unfavorable economic conditions, we have a lot to be proud of.
We have launched the fundamental reforms, changed approaches to the army logistics.
Moral courage, patriotism of our soldiers defending every centimeter of the Ukrainian land are eternal. We have paid for our victories in the east by the lives of our blood brothers; I believe these sacrifices were not useless. The Ukrainians will never forget the deeds of the soldiers.
Now, we may speak about the Ukrainian Army renewal, reborn army and its orientation towards the European and NATO standards.
I am confident, that, in terms of reforms of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, we have not right to stop and mistake.
On this special day, I express my heartfelt gratitude to every soldier, commander for high professionalism and courage.
Thank you for the true Ukrainian morale on the frontline and in the rear!
Thank you for your service!
