Greetings of Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov on the occasion of the Day of the Border Guard
I sincerely congratulate all the guardians of the state frontiers!
Today, you stand on the front of the defensive line of Ukraine together with your brothers in arms from the Armed Forces and the National Guard of Ukraine, protecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of our country. You heroically and selflessly fulfill your constitutional duty, repelling the aggressor, international terrorism and crime.
We bow our heads low before the border warriors who died defending their homeland!
Today, it is important for us to equip the state border in the West according to European standards - a convenient and reliable one, and in the East - to create an insurmountable fortress. I am confident that our border guards will adequately fulfill all the tasks set by the country!
I wish you courage, endurance, and good health! Return to your families healthy and alive from the combat duty!
