December 31, 2015

Dear colleagues and comrades-in-arms!

I cordially congratulate you with the coming New Year and Christmas!

Wonderful atmosphere of these marvelous holidays fill our hearts with family warmth and coziness, as well as with faith in the better future.

The passing year wasn't easy for our country. It was full of ordeals, dramatic events and beginning of large-scale reforms. Defense intelligence has also faced these changes. In the present complicated situation, we improve our activity, enhance our combat strength, and solve important issues of social protection, including the housing problem of our employees.

Today, the future of our country depends on the personal contribution of each of us.

Dear combat sworn brothers, I call you to be courageous and brave, to apply maximum efforts to gain the Victory over the enemy! Ukraine is above all!

I believe that thanks to our joint efforts, we will overcome all the difficulties!

Ukraine will become a full member of a united democratic European family!

Special greetings I send to those who now protect the independence and the territorial integrity of Ukraine on the frontline. Glory to the Heroes! Let the God and our prayers save you!

Let the year 2016 be full of happiness, joy and kindness. Let Christmas come to our homes with tasty kutia, great Christmas carol, peace, consent and love!

Chief of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine
Lieutenant General Valerii KONDRATIUK
