In her letter, President of the Slovak Republic Zuzana Čaputová noted that three decades ago Ukraine had decided to embark on the path of freedom and democracy and maintained this course to this day "thanks to the impressive steadfastness" of Ukrainian citizens and their desire for a "dignified and free life despite many difficult trials."

"The Slovak Republic has always supported Ukraine on this path and supports the Euro-Atlantic integration ambitions of your country and its people. We perceive the European Union and the North Atlantic Alliance primarily as a community of values, and membership in them - not as a goal, but as a means to further strengthen them," said Zuzana Čaputová.

She also stressed Slovakia's continued support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

"The illegal annexation of Crimea and the aggression of the Russian Federation in the east of your country can never become the norm.

In her letter, Prime Minister of Denmark Mette Fredriksen assured of the highest respect for the President of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people, as well as of the unwavering support of Ukraine on the path to peace.

"Denmark is deeply committed to supporting you in your work for a peaceful, democratic and prosperous future of Ukraine. I congratulate you on holding a successful founding summit of the international Crimea Platform. Denmark remains steadfast in supporting Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of Russian aggression and the illegal annexation of Crimea," said Mette Frederiksen, expressing hope for continued valuable and constructive cooperation between Ukraine and the Kingdom of Denmark.
