The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko during a military parade for the 25th anniversary of the Independence congratulated the Ukrainian patriots in the annexed Crimea and occupied Donbas.
“My dear, we love you and we remember you and aggressively fight for your return to Ukraine. The Kremlin perceives the Ukrainian land of Donbass as the theatre of hostilities, and the inhabitants of the region – as cannon fodder to satisfy its Imperial ambitions. And for us, you, our relatives, temporarily separated from her Ukrainian family. Family, which is sure to unite and meet together at the festive table,” said the President.
Poroshenko stressed that Ukraine is fighting for the return of occupied territories through political and diplomatic means.
