Ukrainians honored the fallen soldiers and civilians in Donbas with a minute of silence. "Let peace ring and let us observe a minute of silence to honor the memory of Ukrainian soldiers and civilians, who died in the war started by the aggressor. Will never forget and never forgive - said President Petro Poroshenko during his Independence Day speech.
"25th year of Independence is like passing over the brittle ice. We must understand that the slightest misstep can be fatal. The war of Independence continues, and we can win only by joining our efforts, defense, diplomatic talent, political responsibility, and patience," said the President.
