Greetings of NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov on the occasion of the Day of the Land Forces of Ukraine
Dear friends! Today is the Day of the Land Forces of Ukraine, the largest service branch and the bases of combat potential of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Land Forces carry the greatest load and play a crucial role in securing the territorial integrity and inviolability of borders of our country.
In extremely difficult combat conditions motorized infantry, tankmen, artillerymen, antiaircrafters, communication men and other personnel of Land Forces of Ukraine demonstrate their loyalty to the Military oath, high responsibility and honorably perform the set tasks on ensuring the defense capacity of Ukraine. Your devotion to Ukraine, courage and high professionalism do not allow the enemy to win and step by step today peace and tranquility are being restored in the East of our country.
Eternal memory to the fallen heroes, who gave their lives defending Ukraine!
The strength of our battlers can be measured not only by weapons, but by the extraordinary power of spirit and will to victory and I am sure we will triumph!
I am confident that You will continue to honorably fulfill Your duty for the sake of peace and a liveable future for our country.
Let the combat brotherhood continue to grow stronger, our army becomes more potent, and as a result, the security of state improves!
On this festive day I express You my sincere appreciation for dedication to military cause, honest and conscientious service for the good of the people of Ukraine.
From all my heart I wish You and Your families health, goodness and family coziness, prosperity and professional successes in devoted service to our independent state! May God keep You, Your families and our native country safe!
