Greetings of Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov on the Day of Counterintelligence of Ukraine

Dear counterintelligence agents! I sincerely congratulate you on the professional holiday!

I had the honor of heading the Security Service of Ukraine, and I can tell from experience how important, hard and dangerous is the profession of a counterintelligence agent.

I congratulate the true warriors who protect the country from foreign special services, especially from such aggressive as those of the Russian Federation!

The profession you chose requires not only sharp mind, accurate and profound knowledge, responsibility and courage, but sometimes takes the most valuable thing - life. May the memory and honor of those counterintelligence heroes, who gave their lives defending the interests of Ukraine and its citizens, live forever!

The counterintelligence officers have discovered many agents of the Kremlin, which keep on trying to shatter the situation within the state, create an atmosphere of fear and chaos. Citizens of Ukraine know that our special services will not allow the enemy to realize its insidious plans!

I wish you always to win the enemy! I wish you welfare, well-being, and good health! May God save you, your families and our country!
