Address of Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov on the occasion of the Day of Dignity and Freedom
November 21 is a pivotal day of Ukrainian history. Public protests to protect democratic values, human and citizen rights and freedoms, national interests and the European choice became the catalyst for irreversible changes.
Dignity and Freedom, the struggle for a strong, independent, united state - is the primordial slogan of the Ukrainian people that paves its way.
We will never forget the feat of Heavenly Hundred Heroes who gave their lives for the right of Ukrainians to live in a free, democratic, European country!
We honor patriots who have upheld the independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine!
Those fateful events proved once again: our strength is in unity. Looking to the future, I am confident that only by joining our efforts, following the path of reform, democracy, the rule of law, freedom of expression and choice, will we overcome all challenges.
Happy holiday! The Day of Dignity and Freedom!
