Headline: Address of the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine,
Andrii Parubii on the occasion of the Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation
commemorates the Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation. This is a symbolic day
for every single Ukrainian as our nation partook in two world wars, standing
firm these days against the Russian aggression.
It’s very significant
this is the day of deep reverence, not celebration.
On this day, we are
thinking and paying our tribute of respect to victims of World War II.
With all the nations
of the free world in common, we stand pondering on the victory over Nazism in
Europe and the cost we all paid. I encourage you to recall all the Ukrainians,
who were at war in all armies for the sake of peace. Let us remember all war
veterans, Ukrainian liberation movement members and victims of Nazism!
I bow my head before
those who protected our land as well as the whole world from Nazism during World
Let us remember and be
ready to stand and overcome!
Nowadays, we can see a
new Hitler in the very heart of the European Union – a war criminal Putin has
fanned a new warfare.
We are now making a
profound and thankful bow before our soldiers who defend our freedom in the east of Ukraine, who
sacrificially fight against the new ideology of hatredand
war – Rashizm!
I am grateful today to
all Ukrainians who temporarily live on the occupied territories – despite the risk of their lives
– doing their utmost for the victory of Ukraine.
It is my strong opinion, our country will win this war – as we fight for
peace and freedom on our own land. God and the truth are on our side!
