We represent different regions of Ukraine [...]Despite the fact that we are fascinated by the beauty and grandeur of Antarctica, our hearts beat in unison with the hearts of all Ukrainians. And although there is no escape from homesickness and the desire to see relatives, we are happy to represent the interests of our state here. Congratulations to Ukraine on its anniversary. We wish her development, victories and prosperity. We believe in its success, just as we believe in the success of our mission in Antarctica," the polar explorers congratulated the Ukrainians.
