President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy took part in the celebrations on the occasion of the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, presented state awards, and conferred honorary titles on military units. This is reported by the President's Office press service.

The President of Ukraine greeted the military personnel. He noted that Ukrainian warriors serve regardless of weekends and holidays, at any time of year and in any weather.

"You always defend Ukraine. So, both Ukraine and all our people will always remember your feat, feel your protection, and bow to your strength. Every day. And especially today - on your holiday, on the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine! And, of course, we will remember all the sons and daughters of Ukraine who gave their lives for the sake of our future and protection of the country from the Russian aggressor," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

The Head of State declared a moment of silence for the deceased.

The President stressed that a strong and capable army is a guarantee of the freedom and independence of Ukraine. And gaining NATO's Enhanced Opportunities Partner status proves that the Ukrainian army reform is moving in the right direction.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy also stressed that defense funding will not be reduced even by a single hryvnia, and the Armed Forces of Ukraine will receive the latest and modernized weapons and equipment.

"We will never cut corners on our own army, and therefore on the security of our own country," the President said.
