As the Ukrainian leader visited Kharkiv and opened the underground station called Peremoga (Ukrainian for ‘victory’, - 112 International), he stressed that modern holidays celebrated in Ukraine often remember citizens about independence and victory.    

‘It’s essential that these holidays combine the ideas of independence and victory. We say ‘victory’, meaning not that one in the WWII, but the one that Ukraine needs like air now. We mean the liberation of Ukraine from the aggressor, liberation from the war and setting peace in this country. What’s even more important is that during the war, we, Ukrainians, found a nerve to restore the economy, launch new factories and plants’, Petro Poroshenko said.
