Dear compatriots!

I would like sincerely and cordially congratulate you on the Day of the Defender of Ukraine! We celebrate this holiday on October 14 – on the Day of Protection of the Holy Virgin and at the same time as the Day of Ukrainian Cossacks. This day absorbed the rich and glorious Cossack traditions, embodies the courage and heroism of the defenders and liberators of our native land throughout the centuries-long Ukrainian history.

Today, when the Ukrainians with arms in their hands once again defend independence and defend their territory from the enemy, first of all, we congratulate all the military of Ukraine, our defenders, the support of the state. The tranquility of our homes, the peace in our families – in your reliable and strong hands.

Let your strength and courage always be based on love and support of relatives and friends. I would like you to know, that love, comfort and respect are waiting for you at home. I wish you strong health, success and reliable rear! In addition, to all of us together, I wish a strong state, stability and support from the Most Holy Virgin in difficult times of trials.

Best regards, Andrii Derkach
