Receive our warm congratulations on the Christmas and New Year!
The 2015 was a year of energetic efforts and important breakthroughs: our country was elected a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, Ukraine-EU Free Trade Area is to be launched on January 1, 2016, and the European Commission backed visa-free travel to the EU States for our citizens. Millions of diligent Ukrainians hold out hope for a promising future accomplishing their small, however, important for the collective success deeds.
At the same time, this is happening amid unprecedented aggression of our northern neighbor and heavy death toll in the east of our country. Each day, our Heroes pass away and at the cost of their lives move us closer to the common goal - a democratic and truly independent Ukraine.
Let the 2016 become a year of a long-awaited peace. We wish you all strong health, family warmth, prosperity and steadfast faith in the future of Ukraine, and let neither cold blasts nor Misfortune’s bitter storms stop us.
