The public holiday, the Day of the Defender of Ukraine, is considered to be quite new, but it keeps the history of many centuries. The date October 14 was not chosen by chance, because it is on this day that a large Orthodox holiday is celebrated – the Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos, and the October day was significant for the Zaporozhye Cossacks, who chose foremen on the 14th. Actually, since 1999, an important date in the calendar of holidays was called the Day of the Ukrainian Cossacks. The creation of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army is celebrated on this day.
Today we congratulate all the servicemen of Ukraine. You are our advocates, the support of the state. The peace of our homes, the peace of loved ones are in your safe, strong hands. Please accept our best regards: joy, light mood, professional success!
