The Cabinet of Ministers established the celebration of the Border Guard Day on May 6, instead of May 28 as it was before. Therefore, the relevant President’s decree was approved, as the press-office of the Internal Ministry reported.
As the representatives of the Border Guard Service think, celebrating the Border Guard Day on May 6 has spiritual and patriotic significance for the staff as Ukraine honors the memory of Saint George, the patron of the Service.
It should be noted that the borders guards celebrated the professional day on May 28. On this day in 1918 the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic Border Guard was founded.
