“Ukrainians are a strong nation. We are able to unite and defend our ideals and our future. We have a great state, a strong army and an unbreakable people. We definitely want to live peacefully and prosper on our fertile land, in beautiful Ukraine. And Ukrainians will not allow anyone to encroach on their European democratic future”, – said Hanna.
