Congratulations to the fearless defenders of Ukraine on Armed Forces Day!
Today, as the Ukrainian nation has continued to combat Russian aggression in Eastern Ukraine for six years, we are well aware that freedom must be defended. On Armed Forces of Ukraine Day, we bow our heads before the fearless defenders of Ukraine. Every day, Ukraine’s brave soldiers put their lives on the line defending the independence and sovereignty of Ukraine.
The global Ukrainian Community, led by the Ukrainian World Congress, has repeatedly reaffirmed their commitment to the needs of Ukrainian servicemen, from helping to treat the wounded and raising funds for widows and children to working systematically with governments to develop military leadership, strategic thinking, and information defense.
“Dear soldiers, we thank you for defending the Ukrainian people, the land of our ancestors, and their graves in the homeland. You are responsible for the future of the Ukrainian state and the defense of its territorial integrity. Thanks to you, Ukraine has the opportunity to change and implement significant reforms towards its European and Euro-Atlantic aspirations, ”said UWC President Paul Grod.
