President congratulates Ukrainians on International Human Rights Day

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has congratulated Ukrainians on the International Human Rights Day.

This is reported by the press service of the Head of State.

"Dear compatriots! Today, Ukraine as well as all free world nations marks International Human Rights Day. I wish you, dear compatriots, new achievements for the prosperity of our country, strengthened democracy, and peaceful and successful development of our country!" Poroshenko said.

He noted that human rights were one of the most important social values in Ukraine, and, therefore, the Constitution incorporated the fundamental provisions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

"The protection of human rights and freedoms is particularly acute amid Russia's aggression against Ukraine. The entire civilized world supports our state in this regard. I am sincerely grateful to our international partners, particularly the European Union, which calls on the Russian Federation to immediately release Ukrainian hostages, who are held in the occupied territories and in Russian prisons," the President stressed.
