Greetings of Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov on the occasion of the International Volunteer Day
Dear friends, I congratulate you on the Volunteer Day!
Patriotism, responsibility for the future of the state, kindness, altruism, mercy, generosity are the best traits of a human character. And all of them are inherent in our volunteers who, at the call of the heart, came to the aid of the participants of the Revolution of Dignity, and later - to the warriors on the front line.
The volunteer movement, without exaggeration, united the country, became the driving force behind the positive changes, the foundation of civil society. Volunteers have earned the trust and respect of people with their sincere love for Ukraine, daily sacrifice, and willingness to come to help at any time.
Thank you for the invaluable contribution to the revival of the Armed Forces and the support of our military, for taking care of the wounded, the deprived and the refugees! I wish you firmness, inspiration, and good health!
