October 14 — the Day of Defenders and Defendresses of Ukraine
Representatives of different countries joined the special day for Ukraine and congratulated our heroes.
"Eternal glory to the warriors who gave their lives for our freedom. They are our heroes. Their exploits are forever in the history of our country, in our hearts. And the victory will surely happen and will be the best tribute to our defenders."
"This year, the Defenders of Ukraine Day has a special symbolic meaning. Since February 24, virtually every citizen of your country has in some way become a defender of your land, your lives, your future. We know Ukraine will prevail. The United States will continue to stand with Ukraine for as long as it takes. Slava Ukraini!"
"Supporting Ukraine has already become our daily and one of the most important tasks for the Armed Forces of the Republic of Lithuania. Support for Ukraine has already become our daily routine and one of the essential tasks of the Lithuanian military. Lithuanian soldiers are responsible for all logistical operations, training of soldiers in Lithuania and abroad, translation of educational publications, repair of military equipment and its return to the field battle. The task of each of them is to do everything to ensure that history is not written with mistakes. We do not know when victory will come, but we promise that when it does, it will find us working for our friends who are fighting."
"Congratulations to the brave Ukrainians on Defender of Ukraine Day! Your determination, strength and courage are an inspiration to everyone. Thank you for standing firm in defence of freedom! Glory to Ukraine!"
"Dear Ukrainian comrades, I send you the warmest greetings from the Armed Forces of Sweden. Not an hour goes by that we do not think about you and your struggle for the independence and will of Ukraine. Today is the Day of Defenders of Ukraine. I want you, Ukrainian soldiers and officers on the battlefield, and all the men and women in military and civilian positions, who bravely defend your country to know how much we were impressed by you. As an officer, I am professionally impressed by your skill, your discipline and your endurance. I am, as a person, impressed by your courage and strong sense of duty. You are doing one of the noblest things — protecting your country, your people and your loved ones. You know what you are fighting for. You know, because this is your country, your Ukraine, your people. You know, because every nation has the right to defend itself against an armed attack. You know, because you feel it from the way the Ukrainian people support you. But most importantly, you know, because you see the happiness in the eyes of people in the cities where you come from, you bring freedom. Crimea is Ukraine. Donetsk is Ukraine. Kherson is Ukraine. Luhansk is Ukraine. Zaporizhzhia is Ukraine. You fight for freedom for all of us. And your struggle, your courage and your heavy sacrifices will never be forgotten. Also, the world will never forget the crimes and atrocities committed by the Russian Federation during its illegal aggression against Ukraine. The guilty will be held accountable. Swedish support for Ukraine and the Ukrainian people remains strong, reliable and long-term. Sweden will continue to condemn Russia's aggression. We will continue to support Ukraine and your struggle for sovereignty and territorial integrity. And we will continue to protect you, defenders of Ukraine, in our hearts and thoughts. Glory to Ukraine."
"Congratulations on the Day of Defenders and Defendresses of Ukraine! We admire the Ukrainian people who heroically defended their land and freedom from the Russian invaders. The UK will stand by Ukraine in this fight for as long as it takes to win."
