We will never forget: the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine addressed the American people on Remembrance Day
In his address to the American people, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Valery Zaluzhny, thanked them for their assistance to Ukraine in counteracting Russian aggression.
He wrote about this in the Telegram .
"On behalf of the servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, I would like to express my gratitude and condolences for your deaths on Remembrance Day 2022. Since the founding of the United States Army on June 14, 1775, your military has fought for freedom around the world, with more than 1 million Americans making the greatest sacrifices in more than 20 major wars. Unlike any other great world power in history, the United States fought against totalitarian dictators, freed the oppressed, and then left the state to the people.
Western Europe owes its freedom to your leadership and to the victims of World War II for the extermination of the Nazis. Eastern Europe owes its freedom to your contribution to the destruction of the Soviet Union. Your sacrifices, both in battle and in training, have greatly contributed to the spread of democracy around the world.
Here in Ukraine, we are grateful to your military for their help in the fight for freedom, both with weapons and with ammunition and training. The American tradition of honoring your victims, who made the highest sacrifice so that others could live free, dates back to 1868 and is an inspiring example.
Today we are fighting for our survival, as were your soldiers in June 1775, when your army was founded. Thank you for your continued leadership in the struggle for freedom.
We will never forget, "wrote the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Valery Zaluzhny.
