The relevant statement was made by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky on Facebook, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“The Peace Light of Bethlehem is special this year. This is a symbol of the fact that we are not afraid of anyone and will stand for victory, each in one’s place. After me, the fire will be on the frontline – it will give energy to our warriors who defend Ukraine. It is needed there more than anything else,” Zelensky wrote.
A reminder that, on December 11, 2022, the traditional ceremony of passing the Peace Light of Bethlehem took place at the Malyi Bereznyi border checkpoint in Ukraine.
