Today we celebrate a public holiday – the Day of the Constitution of Ukraine.
Although Ukraine was the last of the post-Soviet countries to adopt its own Constitution, Ukraine was also one of the first countries in which such a document appeared. Indeed, back in the 18th century, the Ukrainian hetman Pylyp Orlik created one of the first constitutions in the world.
Constitution Day is celebrated annually on June 28, the same day on which the Constitution of Ukraine was approved in 1996. Moreover, this is the only public holiday that is enshrined in the Constitution.
The modern constitution has consolidated the legal foundations of an independent Ukraine, its sovereignty and territorial integrity. That is why her statement is a truly significant holiday.
We sincerely congratulate you on this outstanding holiday – the Day of the Constitution of Ukraine! We wish you success and fruitful work for the benefit of the Ukrainian people. May this holiday give you strength and creative achievements in the name of the prosperity of our independent Motherland.
