"Three years ago Ukraine lost one hundred of its citizens in one day: sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, patriots. But on that same day Ukraine gained something else. It gained one hundred reasons to be free and transparent, to be united, to fight corruption. A hundred of reasons for Ukraine to decide its own destiny," Yovanovitch said.
