233 days ago, thousands of fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters took up arms to drive out the enemy who decided that he "has the right" to take human lives.
Our defenders are people who, like each of us,
had their dreams, plans and unique peaceful existence. And when the decisive moment came, they left their families, homes and, risking their lives, went to defend the soul and heart of Ukraine: its people and its land.
This is how they become heroes.
All 233 days of full-scale war, you are our heroes. And it was you who became an example of powerful courage, will and dignity for the world.
Our boundless gratitude and love to every defender of the country! We will choose our freedom together!
Because with us is the truth, God and life itself.
