“The Ukrainian Army has become one of the strongest armed forces on the continent today and one of the 30 best armies in the world. And the essential thing is that in society the respect for their defenders and their risky profession has increased, and at the same time the social status of servicemen is steadily increasing. It's especially heartwarming to watch how hundreds of people with flowers solemnly greet military units that return from a rotation in the area of Anti-Terrorist Operation to their homes,” Groysman stated.
He reminded that four years ago, the Armed Forces of Ukraine were on the verge of collapse.
“We remember the unprecedented volunteer movement, which is still doing its utmost to provide our fighters with everything they need, we remember the courage and resoluteness of our defenders and military officers, especially in the first two years of the war, when the enemy used force against our state. At that time, the whole country had faced a formidable task - to modernize the army in conditions of hostile aggression and active hostilities,” the prime minister said and added that now Ukrainian have every reason to be proud of the Ukrainian army.
Groysman thanked all soldiers and officer personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the conscientious and brave performance of military duty and protection of the Motherland and honored the memory of those who gave lives, protecting their country.
“I wish all soldiers of the Armed Forces good health, professional growth, good fortune and safe journey home!” Groysman added.
