An important, symbolic week begins tomorrow. The week when we will celebrate the Day of Ukrainian Statehood on July 28 for the first time.
At the time of such a brutal war – in the sixth month of it. After eight years of war in Donbas. But we will celebrate. Despite all. Because Ukrainians cannot be broken. After all that our people have gone through, after all that we have learned over the centuries, Ukrainians will never give up their independence.
Therefore, we do not slow down and, as every day for five months, we are doing everything to inflict the greatest possible losses on the enemy and to gather as much support as possible for Ukraine.
This week there will be important visits of partners, there will be important negotiations, and most importantly, there will be the further advancement of Ukrainian positions. At the front, in diplomacy, in the economy.
I am grateful to everyone who defends our country! And I wish all of us, all Ukrainians, a fruitful new week.
