Ukraine’s national team is participating in the event for the first time.
Addressing the participants of the Ukrainian team and the attendees, the President thanked Prince Henry of Wales for an exceptional initiative - foundation of the Invictus Games in 2014.
“I am proud to be here today to honor the Ukrainian team that will take part in the Invictus Games for the first time. These soldiers represent the essence of an unbreakable spirit of the Ukrainian army,” Petro Poroshenko noted.
The Invictus Games is an international Paralympic-style multi-sport event, created by Prince Harry of Wales, in which wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans take part in sports.
