Ukrainians have resurrected their Armed Forces within only 2 years, says Oleksandr Turchynov

The Ukrainian armed forces are becoming one of the most battle-worthy in Europe, the National Security and Defence Council Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov said on October 14.

"The profession of defender of the Motherland is now one of the most honourable in Ukrainian society, our army is becoming one of the most efficient in Europe. To stop an enemy, we picked up weapons, and every day the courageous warriors, the descendants of Cossacks, stand firmly for Ukraine", Turchynov claimed in his congratulation address on the Defender of Ukraine Day.

Ukrainians managed to resurrect and arm their forces in only two years, said the Secretary. Successes in confronting our enemy, based not only on modern weaponry and professionalism but also on the unity of its people, he stressed.

"Everyone today does everything he or she can to make Ukraine an independent, democratic, powerful European nation, a mighty and undefeatable Ukrainian army is a guarantor of our independence and development", Turchynov claimed.
