Greetings of NSDC Secretary of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov on the occasion of the Journalist Day
I sincerely congratulate all journalists on their professional holiday!
The profession of a journalist has always been one of the most needed and the most dangerous. You are always on the edge, always in the eye of the storm. Lives may depend on your word - either spoken or not. A journalist is a litmus test for the whole society, he is its eyes and ears. These are your eyes with which we see the events of the day.
Days go by, becoming history. The history that You write! I want to thank you for your everyday work, for that, sacrificing your weekends, your pastime, you fulfill in good faith your professional duty. It sounds somewhat military, but you are also the soldiers of Ukraine! Your weapon is the word! And it must protect Ukraine! I wish you more strength and inspiration, creative and personal realization and a strong belief in Ukraine, which we together, by joint efforts, can make a true European country!
May God bless you and your families!
