“May 9 is not just the day of the end of one of the bloodiest wars in the history of mankind. This is the day of national pride of Ukrainians for their grandfathers and great-grandfathers. Indeed, most of the residents of modern Ukraine are the descendants of those soldiers who, without pitying themselves, step by step, cleared the land of fascist abomination. That is why, May 9 should remain a unifying holiday for Ukraine!
We will not allow anyone to revise the history of the Great Patriotic War and minimize the feat of our people in it! Nothing will force me to personally betray the memory of my two grandfathers-liberators!” MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC Volodymyr Husak addressed his fellow citizens on the eve of Victory Day.
