By order of the President of
Ukraine the Day of the Heavenly
Hundred Heroes is celebrated on February 20th – in honour of bravery, moral courage and firmness of those who laid
down their life during the Revolution of Dignity, defending the ideals of
democracy, fighting for human rights and freedoms, European future of Ukraine.
Revolution of Dignity has
become a great and at the same time tragic page of our history. It was then that
we overcame evil forces with the help of powerfull
will of millions of Ukrainians and took the path which will definitely lead
Ukraine to worthy future.
Many generations of Ukrainians
laid down their life in the name of sovereign State. We are filled with their
spirit, the spirit of our freedom-loving ancestors, rich history. We honour heroes of different historic events. Now these lists
are added with the names of the Heavenly Hundred, participants of the
Revolution of Dignity and war in the East of Ukraine. Without imperishable
memory of our fallen blood brothers we will not build a powerful Ukrainian State.
Let’s merit this memory in the
name of the present and future generations, in the name of freedom and
independence of our Motherland.
Let a moving recollection of
fallen heroes unite us, give strength and freedom, wisdom and inspiration to
strengthen Ukrainian State on Ukrainian land.
Glory to our heroes!
Glory to Ukraine!
The Head of the Security Service of Ukraine
