Greetings of Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov on the occasion of the Day of the Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
I sincerely congratulate the combat personnel of the Special Operations Forces on a professional holiday!
The creation of units of the Special Operations Forces was one of the important steps in reforming the Armed Forces of Ukraine in accordance with the NATO standards. Their purpose is to solve the most challenging tasks in the most dangerous combat conditions, in particular, in the enemy's rear.
I am convinced that the soldiers and officers of the Special Operations Forces are ready to perform their tasks with dignity. Because the best soldiers and officers, who have considerable military experience behind them, were selected to these Forces. Many of them have received honored state awards for courage and heroism.
The Special Operations Forces became a role model for the whole Armed Forces of Ukraine, an example of courage, bravery, and professionalism. You are the powerful force of our army, the pride of our country, worthy successors of glorious traditions of the Ukrainian army!
Happy holiday, dear friends!
