Сегодня Украина защищает Европу, которая возникла на руинах Второй мировой войны – МИД.

Украина в субботу, 8 мая, чтит память жертв Второй мировой войны, в которой погибли более 8 млн украинцев, напоминает Министерство иностранных дел Украины.

"Во время войны более 8 млн украинцев были убиты, замучены или умерли от голода. Более 7 млн украинцев воевали против нацистов в рядах союзников. Наши соотечественники были на передовой - с самого начала до окончательной победы. Это история о разрушении, смерти и дезинформации - большой лжи, которая разжигает вражду, уничтожает и убивает", - отмечается в сообщении МИД Украины в соцсети Facebook.

Несмотря на надежду, что война больше никогда не придет на украинскую землю, в 2014 году Россия начала военную агрессию против Украины и оккупировала часть украинской территории, напомнили в министерстве.

"Сегодня Украина защищает не только саму себя, но и всю демократическую Европу. Ту Европу, которая появилась на руинах Второй мировой войны и объединена главной идеей "Никогда снова", - подчеркнули в МИД.
