Oleksandr Turchynov: Our reconnaissance units stand on the front of defensive line
NSDC Secretary congratulated officers of Foreign Intelligence Service with the tenth anniversary of creation of the Service.
Today the Foreign Intelligence Service marks the tenth anniversary. The modern state cannot exist without potent and effective intelligence services. This is especially relevant in times of global challenges, collapse of borders and collective forms of security. The lives of thousands of our citizens, who defend the country, depend on your professional, prompt and efficient work. During last ten years you have faced many challenges, but one of the most difficult periods, of course, were the last two years, when we had to restore the deliberately destroyed Service almost from the grassroots, purifying it from traitors and opportunists.
The officers of the Foreign Intelligence Service are on the front of our country's defensive line and every day are doing their difficult and responsible work without pathos and self-promotion, remaining unknown to the majority of our citizens. But thanks to your work our common victory is coming nearer. May God bless you and Ukraine! Congratulations!
