“The honorary title is awarded to mothers of many children, those who brought up five or more children up to 8 years old, and created proper conditions for their education as well as physical, intellectual and spiritual development of the children”, reads the message.
In his speech on the occasion, Petro Poroshenko noted that the very image of mother has special meaning for the society.
“To every one of us, Mom embodies best human traits; she is a symbol of holiness and kindness. The best things on Earth are consecrated by mother’s love, patience and forgiveness. In tough times, every one of us seeks serenity and comfort in the warmth and true tenderness of our mothers. Today, in such hard times for our country, the image of mother gets very special meaning, as it is the Mother who constantly prays for peace and happy future of Ukraine”, he said.
“I bow to mothers of heroes of the Heavenly Hundred and those of the warriors who defend their Motherland. Part of their hearts and souls are forever in their sons’ deeds”, the President concluded.
