We, the AUASO “Alraid” team, offer our sincere congratulations to all of us upon the occasion of 23 Anniversary of Ukrainian Independence restoration. Ukrainian nation has passed a long way over those 23 years, from the post-soviet habit of “waiting for the centre’s orders” to the eagerness of take our own destiny in our hands, coordinate, make informed choice and be responsible for it, both personally and historically.
Reviving those qualities, traditionally inherent for the polyethnic Ukrainian nation, help us carry on in this difficult time, when many “misfortune analysts” made doom-laden prognosis for the nearest future, up to disappearance of our Homeland from the political map of the world. We bent together, we united our efforts, and this helped us survive into the next Independance Day.
We ask God Almighty to send His Mercy upon the long suffering land of Ukraine, which is longing for peace and security. TO send wisdom and patience upon Ukrainian people and the new Government; strengthen consent and mutual support between us, and grant us success in our striving to establish a fair society and a state based on a rule of law. Ukraine will be, God willing, unanimous and free! And we — all together — will do our very best to contribute to that.
