Greetings of Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov on the occasion of the Day of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine
Dear intelligence officers and
veterans! I sincerely congratulate you on the professional holiday!
This year, Ukrainian intelligence
agents will celebrate their centenary anniversary at the state level for the
first time. A hundred years ago, in the turbulent times of the national
liberation struggle in the Ukrainian People's Republic, the first unit of
nationwide intelligence service was established as an important and vital
institution of an independent state.
Today, when our state and the
Ukrainian nation are hardened in conditions of severe trials and losses,
intelligence officers in Ukraine show high professionalism, dedication and
patriotism, valorously performing dangerous tasks, revealing the aggressor's
plans and intentions.
Courage and invincible spirit of the intelligence
agents, loyalty and love to the Homeland, reliability and dedication to the
cause are not some ordinary slogans for you, but everyday work, full of deep
meaning. These personal and professional qualities are a reliable guarantee of
Ukraine's consolidation, the liberation of the occupied territories and our
I am convinced that you will further bear the
honorable rank of an intelligence officer, multiplying the best traditions of
Ukrainian special services!
I sincerely congratulate you on the professional
holiday! May God bless you, your families and our Ukraine!
Glory to Ukraine!
