"This is the path of warriors, the path of people who have the courage and dignity to choose freedom. It is filled with blood, full of suffering and pain, but it is he who leads us forward to take revenge and win, leaving no room for fear and despair. Every day, aware of the price we pay for freedom, I gather all my will in my fist so that I have enough strength to defeat the aggressor and repel his desire to encroach on our freedom at any time in the future," said Zaluzhny.

The commander of the United Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Serhiy Naev

, noted the high level of motivation, excellent indicators of combat, physical and moral and psychological training of the Ukrainian defenders.

"For the ninth year in a row, you are defending your native land from the aggressor. At the limit of human capabilities, you emerge from extremely difficult situations with honor and valor. Today, you are protecting the state and people who are choosing the path of democratic development and practicing European values, you are defending the right of Ukrainians to free life in a free country. I sincerely wish you new personal victories and our great Victory, health to you and your families, joy in your soul and smiles in your heart!" - said Naev.

The Russian army will lose on the battlefield in Ukraine, because it is opposed by the valor, spirit and victory of the Ukrainian military.
