On August 24, 2014 Ukraine will celebrate 23 years of the Independence.
After two decades of the intensive work in order to transform national economy to the market one and strengthening the Government structures, only in 2014 the young country Ukraine began a new life.
Owing to Maidan, Revolution of the Dignity, the fair elections on May 25, 2014 Ukraine will follow the pace of democracy and eurointegration. We are determined to start our work first of all from the building of the peaceful and prosperous country. We will receive a new country which will be free, democratic and European. Nobody has the right to veto the European choice of Ukraine.
The modernization on the basis of European standards would be the key to the success of Ukraine, which would allow to resolve a lot of issues. The world today is with Ukraine. Ukraine is a moment of truth that gives answers to many questions. Ukraine is a toehold and a point of resistance that can change the world for the better. Ukraine is a sign of faith, freedom and democracy. For that sake we are ready to run, to fight, to change. Truth and God are on the side of Ukraine, and thus the support of the world.
The whole generations of Ukrainian patriots struggled for our national independence. The heroes of the “Heavenly Hundred” have died for it. Ukrainian soldiers and peaceful citizens die for it.
During the Russian aggression, courage and heroism of Ukrainian warriors who keep the Ukrainian-Russian border under fire control is impressing. We are proud of our paratroopers from the 79th brigade, our mechanized infantry from the 72th brigade, our special operations soldiers.
The peace has not yet come, but today we can firmly say that the hard trials united Ukrainian family. They have strengthened us as the Ukrainian political nation, confident in its European choice. Our nation has never been so strong as now.
Ukraine was, is and will be a unitary state!
There is no doubt that we shall overcome all difficulties, defend the territorial integrity of our country and provide peace of mind. Ukraine shall not remain to be the slave of crime and bureaucracy, the servants of the colonial power or the part of the new empire.
Ukraine begins the long transition from corruption, autocracy, and instability to pluralistic democracy and a modern economy. The country is now fighting for the independence and knows it price.
We will act decisively and purposefully to gain peace and prosperity in Ukraine.
Glory to Ukraine!
