"Establishing the full truth about the crimes of the occupiers on our independent Ukrainian land is a fundamental prerequisite for bringing Russia itself to full responsibility for aggression and terror. We must do everything for this - for justice. And I am grateful to those of you who are bringing this time - the time of justice - closer. Russian criminals will definitely be held accountable for all they have committed against Ukraine and our people," the President emphasized.

As reported, Ukraine celebrates the National Police Day on July 4. The holiday was established in 2018.
