"A matter of hours remains until the New Year. Summing up the past year, first of all, I want to thank all those heroes who selflessly, without hesitation went to protect our homeland. Thanks to you, thanks to your courage, bravery and honesty to yourselves, the state, we have been able to survive. We stopped the aggressor. "
"This year has been extremely difficult. We met the last new year at the Maidan with one hundred thousand of our comrades, who were willing to do anything for Ukraine to become a democratic country. We won, but the fight is not over. Our country faces a strong and dangerous enemy, thus, in order to win, we need to combine all our efforts," Turchynov wrote.
"Our future depends on our faith, perseverance and goal-oriented work. I believe that next year will be the year of victory, the year of our country's liberation from invaders and terrorists! May God bless Ukraine and all of you in the upcoming year. Happy New Year!" he concluded.
