– I could have never imagined that a wish for a peaceful sky above our heads would become so relevant in a country, which you helped liberate at such an enormous price. Therefore, May 9 for us, your children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, is a sacred holiday and the most important one. If it were not for this day, we would not be able to celebrate many others , – MP says.
The heads of districts, activists, members of local and regional councils, schoolchildren have visited the veterans of Glukhiv, Putyvl, Shostka, Krolevets, Yampol, and Seredyno-Budsk Districts on his behalf.
Saying that the veterans were overjoyed at the attention would be an understatement. Many of them showed 10-15 holiday cards from Andrii Derkach that they had received in all previous years and still keep, as it turns out.
