On the Day of Unity, the inhabitants of Ukraine became participants in the virtual chain that united Kiev with Simferopol
KIEV – To become one – you need to be strong. Enough divisions. This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelensky on the 102nd anniversary of the proclamation of the Universal on the unification of the Ukrainian People’s Republic and the West Ukrainian People’s Republic..
On the occasion of this event and the Act of Reunification of the UPR and ZUNR in the country, the Day of Unity was proclaimed, celebrated on January 22 of each year.
“We must once and for all learn the lessons of a century ago and never forget: to become strong, you need to be united. To become one, you need to be strong. Enough divisions. It is important to remember that collegiality is not only about territory. One of the longest-standing wishes of our people is about unity – a fundamental dream. But it cannot be achieved once and for all.. This is a permanent job. This is a daily movement “, – stressed the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.
According to the leader of the state, the dream of unity is not something in the past, not an ideological frame from above, and not an achievement that can be simple.
“Unfortunately, we are united not only by happy but also tragic pages. Every day, especially today, we must unite, support each other, stand brother for brother, shoulder to shoulder, “Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted..
Volodymyr Zelenskyy recalled a quote from the Universal about the unification of the UPR and ZUNR: “From now on, parts of a united Ukraine, torn from one another, merge together for centuries …”.
He expressed confidence that “in the future we will be able to overcome everything and together we will become the creators of a new act of reunification”.
