Dear defenders of the Fatherland!
Please accept my sincere congratulations on the wonderful holiday of courage and honour!
I sincerely believe that from generation to generation the memory of the immortal feat of all those who faithfully served, who, at the expense of their lives, stood in the way of the enemy, who defended the right of Donbass to independently determine its future, will be passed on from generation to generation. We express low bow to you!
Defender of the Fatherland Day is also a symbol of courage. This is the day when we congratulate those who protect us from difficulties and hardships, who are responsible for the present and do everything possible to make the future happy.
I wholeheartedly wish you happiness, health, prosperity, success and new achievements in life! Remain a steel shield to your Motherland!
