President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky emphasizes that for the sixth year Ukraine has been protecting its sovereignty from the aggression of the Russian Federation, and is doing everything for a just peace in its understanding.
"Dear Ukrainians! Today, for the sixth year in a row, we are defending our sovereignty from Russian aggression. We pay a high price for this — the lives of our citizens. Today, the entire civilized world recognizes that Ukraine is doing everything to bring about such a desired peace. A just peace. Peace in our understanding of the word. It's the peace where state sovereignty will prevail in reality, and not on paper," he said on Thursday speaking at the solemn meeting of the Verkhovna Rada on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration on State Sovereignty of Ukraine.
Zelensky pointed out that Ukraine cannot return the dead, but must return all its territories. "To restore faith in truth and justice to demonstrate that what our heroes died for is never useless. I am convinced that we, the Ukrainians, have a chance to achieve this only in one instance - if we all unite. Just like 30 years ago," he said.
