Greetings of Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov on the occasion of the Day of the Security Service of Ukraine
I sincerely congratulate all personnel, officers, and veterans of the Security Service of Ukraine, patriots and professionals, on this holiday!
Your service is responsible, tough and dangerous. The SSU officers are enshielding Ukraine, they are standing in the guard of state interests, sovereignty and constitutional order, security, and peace of Ukrainian citizens.
You faithfully and selflessly fulfill your constitutional duty on the external and internal fronts, effectively counteract terrorism, separatism, crime and insidious provocations of the special services of the Russian Federation.
Thanks to the professional work of counterintelligence agents, the attempts of Russian special services to destabilize the situation in Ukraine, sow panic, chaos, and despair have been thwarted.
May the memory and honor of the SSU staff, who gave their lives, fulfilling their duty, advocating the interests of Ukraine and its citizens, live forever!
I want to thank the employees of the Service who have made incredible efforts to release the captured Ukrainian servicemen and civilians!
I wish you ещ always be the first in work and life! I wish you good health, well-being, and inexhaustible energy! May God bless you and your families!
