Ukraine will celebrate all important dates related to the history of our country, because at the time of full-scale Russian aggression, special attention should be paid to important pages of state formation. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said this during a meeting with media representatives following negotiations with President of the Republic of Guatemala Alejandro Giammattei Falla.
The Head of State noted that Ukraine is not going to give any part of the history of a great nation and a great state to anyone.
"Despite the fact that there is a war, we will definitely celebrate all important dates for our state. Yes, due to security conditions, it is not very loud, we cannot afford it, because today the money goes to the front. But these dates will definitely be in our calendar, in our memory, for our children. We must do it,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
The President emphasized that it is important to overcome the Russian narrative regarding the history of Ukrainian statehood.
"The Day of Statehood, the Day of the Baptism of Kyivan Rus’ is a great history of our great nation. And it is not a coincidence that our state can’t be broken today: the history of the inviolability of our state is not one year and not one day. This history is a thousand years old. That's why we fight and that's why we will definitely win," he said.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy also emphasized that Ukraine plans to celebrate Independence Day this year. According to him, the program of events is not disclosed until this date for security reasons.
