President of Ukraine

Congratulations

I am happy that over a quarter of century the United Kingdom has been at the forefront of supporting Ukraine, our democratic and European reforms. We are also grateful for the strong and consistent support of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of Ukraine. I hope that the United Kingdom as party to the Budapest Memorandum will continue exerting its influence to strengthen the Normandy format.

I am confident that such a remarkable sports event will draw the interest of millions of fans from all over the world – the players will fully demonstrate their skills and talent in the atmosphere of intellectual rivalry.
