Year-end message from the Ukrainian president
End message also for the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, which ensures a “fight to victory” for 2023. “2022 – Zelensky said – has touched our hearts. We have cried all our tears and screamed all our prayers. 311 days and we have something to say about every minute that passes. But most words are superfluous. explanations” but “silence is necessary to listen” and “pauses are necessary to realize”.
“We don’t know for sure – continues the Ukrainian president – what the new 2023 will bring us” but “I want to wish all of us one thing: victory. And this is the main thing. Let this year be the year of return. The return of our people. The soldiers to their families. The prisoners to their homes. Those who migrated to their Ukraine. The return of our lands. And that the temporarily occupied territories become free forever. Of the return to normal life. To happy moments without curfews. To earthly joys without air raids. The return of what was stolen from us. The childhood of our children, the serene old age of our parents. May the new year – wishes Zelensky – bring all of this. We are ready to fight. That’s why each of us is here,” he says, concluding: “We are all Ukraine. Glory to Ukraine! Happy New Year.”
