Now our people will celebrate the Day of the Ukrainian Armed Forces with words of gratitude, feelings of gratitude, tears of gratitude. Such a statement made the President of Ukraine.
“Today is the day of our gratitude. This is exactly the meaning of December 6 - and it is forever. Now, this is the only way our people will celebrate the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - with words of gratitude, feelings of gratitude, tears of gratitude.
I am sure, millions of times today "thank you" was said or simply thought in Ukraine.
I am thankful to the warriors of our army and all formations of the defense forces of Ukraine.
I am thankful to the parents of our warriors who raised real winners. That"s that - winners.
I am thankful to all the doctors and nurses who save the wounded heroes.
I am thankful to everyone who strengthens the defense and provides Ukrainian warriors with everything they need.
When the Day of the Armed Forces in a state is a holiday of gratitude, I am sure that such a state cannot be defeated and cannot be broken. And today we all see it for sure and have seen it again.
Today it is an honor for me to spend the whole day together with our defenders. In the morning, I was in the Donetsk region - I thanked the fighters who defend our state in the most dangerous and responsible directions. Those who are fighting in Svatove, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and other directions in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. I presented state awards and decorations to the warriors.
I was in the Kharkiv region today - I thanked the doctors who save our indomitable fighters. In the Kharkiv region, I presented awards to the fighters who participated in the liberation of the region and who continue to expel the occupiers from Ukraine”, - said Volodymyr Zelensky.
