"At the moment, it is necessary to pass the period of changing the authorities without any internal political turbulence. It is not only about the newly elected President of Ukraine taking up duties, but also about the election of the Verkhovna Rada," Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said during a speech at the ceremony commemorating the victims of political repression on the territory of the Bykivnia Graves State Historical and Memorial Preserve.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko emphasizes that this year the world and Ukraine recall the anniversaries of tragic events - the 75th anniversary of the deportation of the Crimean Tatar people, the terrible crimes of the communist regime against humanity, the 80th anniversary of the Second World War, which should become an important lesson to avoid the repeat in the future. It was stated by Petro Poroshenko during a speech at the ceremony commemorating the victims of political repression on the territory of the Bykivnia Graves State Historical and Memorial Preserve.

"We paid too high price for the Ukrainian independence and our freedom. We must remember this by looking into the past and the future," President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko told during a speech at the ceremony commemorating the victims of political repression on the territory of the Bykivnia Graves State Historical and Memorial Preserve.   

On the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Political Repression, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and his wife Maryna Poroshenko honored memory of thousands of deceased in times of repression. The Head of State and his wife took part in the events on the territory of the Bykivnia Graves State Historical and Memorial Preserve.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko notes that Crimean Tatars are currently experiencing the same persecution and oppression in Crimea as 75 years ago in Soviet times. He said this during the requiem for the 75th anniversary of the genocide of the Crimean Tatar people.

"The legislative consolidation of the inalienable right of the Crimean Tatar people as indigenous people of Ukraine to self-determination within the independent Ukrainian state should be completed," Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said during the requiem for the 75th anniversary of the genocide of the Crimean Tatar people.

During the requiem for the 75th anniversary of the genocide of the Crimean Tatar people, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko stressed that Russia was trying to turn the Crimean peninsula into a militarized zone, and Ukraine must do everything to strengthen international support in the fight for the liberation of its land.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko emphasizes that Ukraine and the European Union have become closer than ever in the past five years. The Head of State is convinced that this success should become the basis for the further economic integration between the EU and the renewed Ukraine.

"Ukraine must definitely continue its path to Europe. Ukraine should ensure the implementation of the provision that European integration is a guarantee of the independence of the Ukrainian state. This is a guarantee of the welfare of the Ukrainian people, a pledge of accelerated economic and technological growth. European integration is a breath of freedom. European integration is a democracy and a sense of dignity for ourselves, for our country," President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko emphasized during a speech at the solemn ceremony on Europe Day.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko is hopeful that the new Head of State will continue the course of Ukraine to the European Union, as most Ukrainians support this direction of state development.
