"One of the real stories of Ukraine over the past 28 months or so is Vladimir Putin's underestimation of Ukrainian women. Whether it was the courage of Ruslana standing out on the Maidan stage singing the national anthem, the courage of Olha Bohomolets and her medical corps... the many of you who have been part of the civil society and have now walked on the other side of the line to become leaders in the Rada and in government... all of the Ukrainian women who have played leading roles in the ATO as volunteers, soldiers... and more than anybody else, Nadiya Savchenko whose courage and resilience is such a powerful symbol of Ukrainian endurance," Pyatt said.Источник: https://en.censor.net.ua/n378019
