Preserving the historical memory, retaining memories of the difficult and terrible times for our country is a lifelong mission for each of us. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said this, opening the Government's sitting on Wednesday, February 20.
Today, the officials honored the memory of the Heroes of Heavenly Hundred with a minute of silence.
"Today we mark the Day of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes - the people who gave the most valuable they had to ensure Ukraine developing and Ukrainians getting the right to build their own state. It's hard to lose people. And today I would like to share with the families of the victims the loss of pain that they carry through the years", said Volodymyr Groysman.
He stressed that the struggle for Ukraine still continues. "They are trying to destroy us, take over our territories, but it is impossible to defeat the truth, the pain and spirit that Ukrainians have – out unity and consolidation. Our response to the aggression should be clear - to change the country, to make it a leader, to give a new quality of life to the citizens", the Prime Minister noted.
For this, according to Volodymyr Groysman, structural and profound changes are necessary. And now the Government is introducing decentralization, updating infrastructure, helping industrialists to enter new markets.
"We have endured a tough period. And our further pace must be filled with correct decisions. Following this path we will achieve the goals", the Head of Government emphasized. "For years, we have been forced to forget our history. It is impossible to tolerate that nowadays, and therefore we attach special attention to the issues reminding about hard times. Our memory must be fundamental. Preserving our memory should become a lifelong mission for each person."
