Greetings of Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov on the occasion of the Day of the Aerospace Industry Workers and of the World Aviation and Cosmonautics Day
I sincerely congratulate the aerospace industry workers of Ukraine with the professional holiday!
Ukrainian scientists and designers are globally respected authorities in the field of rocket and aircraft construction. The enterprises of the national aerospace complex adequately ensure that urgent tasks of national security and defense are completed and implement national geopolitical interests.
Thanks to this dedicated and painstaking work Ukraine is confidently asserting itself on the world stage as a modern space and aviation state. Strategic success in the production of modern aircraft and missiles, not inferior to the best world analogs, has been achieved. Ukraine's missile shield is being restored, which should become an element of an integrated security system on the European continent.
So I wish you new achievements and successes that will enable Ukraine's rising to a new level and strengthening its position as a high-tech aviation and space power!
