The Declaration of Independence was one of the most significant documents ever signed in the history of Ukraine. This was the first step towards building a strong and independent state. It embodies the age-long dream of our descendants to be the masters of their land. The Declaration became a symbol for national reassertion, economic and spiritual freedom, and preservation of the authentic Ukrainian culture.
Ukrainian history has been challenging and full of struggle. Even today, after 30 years of independence, we are still fighting against Russian aggression. The sons and daughters of the Ukrainian nation prove their devotion to the country by protecting us every day. Every Ukrainian must remember the price they pay for our freedom.
Tomorrow we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the proclamation of independence of our land, our state, and our people. Regardless of whether you were born in Kyiv, Odesa, Donetsk, Lviv, or Chernivtsi and how old you are, we all have one thing in common. We are proud children of our Motherland and we are having a bright future ahead. Together we can build an even stronger and advanced community.
Happy Independence Day, dear Ukraine! Stay strong and flourish.
