Princess Anne (daughter of Queen Elizabeth II) addressed Ukrainians and other peoples of the former Soviet republics on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of Victory Day and the end of World War II in Europe. The relevant statement was published by the British Embassy in Kyiv.
"It is extremely important for us to celebrate the incredible sacrifice made by the peoples of the former Soviet Union. Hardly anyone fought more bravely or suffered more for the sake of victory," the statement said.
It is worth noting that today, on May 8, Ukraine celebrates the Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation. A memorable date always falls on May 8 - the anniversary of the surrender of Nazi Germany in 1945.
As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has honored the memory of those killed in World War II.
He laid flowers at the Eternal Flame on the Russian-Ukrainian border.
"The head of state visited Milove settlement which is divided by the border between Ukraine and Russia. In Milove, the president visited the memorial complex “Ukraine - to the liberators”," the statement said.
