The Armed Forces of Ukraine protect our democracy, freedom, and truth. They fight for our right to be Ukrainians and live by our own rules. In the horrors of war, their unstoppable brave energy keeps the heart of Ukraine beating
When we open our eyes in the morning, we know it is possible because of the defenders' sacrifice. And when we go to sleep, we pray for our defenders to come back alive
they are — the true heroes — not in the movies or comics but on the battlefield fighting for a brighter future
Glory to the Armed Forces! Glory to Ukraine!
