New Year greetings from Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov
Dear friends, I warmly congratulate you on the New Year!
This year for Ukraine was another one to struggle for freedom and independence, the year of building a strong national state based on the powerful Armed Forces, reliable and effective security and defense sector.
First of all, I would like to convey my cordial greetings to our courageous and persistent warriors who are holding the line on these holidays! Step by step, meter by meter, - we will regain the occupied territories! Glory and honor to you, heroes!
The next year is vital for each of us and for Ukraine's independence, its European choice. Many would probably like to fall asleep today in one Ukraine, and to wake up tomorrow - in another, where the law is above all, where corruption is over, where living standards excite envy among the European countries, and the eastern neighbor ran away from the occupied territory like a whipped dog. It may seem like a dream, but every dream can come true only when you work on it every day. Everything around us can change only when we will be able to change ourselves!
The New Year is always a hope for renewal and changes, expectations and festive uplift. So let the new year be a year of achievements and victories, good deeds, happiness and positive! I wish you welfare and prosperity, love and joy! May God bless your families and our Ukraine!
Happy New Year 2019!
