Lawmakers applaud Ukrainian peacekeepers

Ukrainian MPs have applauded Ukrainian peacemakers, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"Today Ukraine marks the Ukrainian Peacekeepers Day. I think we need to thank all those who helped bring order and peace to many hot spots in our world. Unfortunately, today we also have such a hot spot - the war in the east of our state. I hope that in all possible ways we will be able to achieve peace and victory so that Ukraine is united again, inviolable and no one encroaches on our borders," Verkhovna Rada Chairman Dmytro Razumkov said, while opening a parliamentary meeting on Wednesday.

After his speech, lawmakers present in the Verkhovna Rada stood up and thanked the Ukrainian peacekeepers with applause.

On May 21, 2013, the Verkhovna Rada unanimously adopted Resolution No. 292-VII "On Establishing the Ukrainian Peacekeepers Day." The resolution defines July 15 as the Ukrainian Peacekeepers Day in order to honor the courage and valor of peacekeepers, the exemplary performance of their official duties and loyalty to their oath. This day serves to ensure the preservation of the memory of glorious peacekeepers who died during the performance of their duties as part of the peacekeeping contingent and peacekeeping personnel.
