“Today we are on Snake Island, our Snake Island, which will never be conquered by the occupier, same as the whole of Ukraine. Because we are a country of the brave. Today we have honored our Ukrainian heroes, all the warriors who fought for this island, who liberated it. And although this is a small piece of land in the middle of our Black Sea, it is a great proof that Ukraine will regain every part of its territory! From here, from this place, I want to thank each of our warriors for these 500 days! Our Armed Forces, our intelligence, border guards, the National Guard, the Security Service of Ukraine, the National Police, our signalmen, our people. Thank you to everyone who fights for Ukraine,” the President of Ukraine said.
According to Zelensky, the freedom that all Ukrainian heroes of different times wanted for Ukraine and which should be won right now will be a tribute to all those who gave their lives for Ukraine.
“We will definitely win,” the Head of State stressed.
In addition, President Zelensky left an inscription on Snake Island’s signpost.
A reminder that Ukraine’s Defense Forces liberated Snake Island from Russian invaders on June 30, 2022.
