Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov expressed his condolences to Levko Lukyanenko’s family and friends on the occasion of his death
"Levko Lukyanenko, a true hero, a true patriot of Ukraine, who was sentenced to death by the Soviet empire and spent 25 years in Soviet prisons and camps for his belief in an independent Ukraine, passed away. A man-epoch, a man-symbol, a person who brought the independence of our country to life.
I had the privilege to know him personally, we worked for many years in the same parliamentary faction. His wisdom and personal example had always encouraged people giving them optimism and faith in victory. Thanks to such people as Levko Hryhorovych, Ukraine was, is and will be!
