As Ukraine prepares to celebrate the International Women’s Day on March 8, leading officials congratulated their female compatriots on this date. In particular, Stepan Poltorak, the Defense Minister, delivered a speech at the Council of Reforms’ Committee of the Ministry on Friday.
“A woman’s role on the frontline is crucial, because every day, she reminds us what we are dying for, what we are fighting for in our home land. A woman reminds us of our mothers, our wives, daughters, and that gives us strength. All women serving with the army, volunteers and all those who care for the Armed Forces contribute to strengthening our troops, so that we can protect our independence and statehood; there are no doubts about it”, the official said.
Poltorak wished Ukrainian women love, inspiration and best of luck in their deeds.
