President-elect of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky went to his home town Kryvyi Rih (the Dnipropetrovsk region) on the Victory day over Nazism. There he visited the grave of his grandfather, who served during the Second World War, as the press service of Zelensky reported.
“Today, I am near the grave of my grandfather Zelensky Semen Ivanovych. He withstood the whole war, and I will always remember him as one of those heroes, who defended Ukraine from Nazi. Pity, that we recollect veterans so rarely, our grandparents. We should be very grateful to them every day,” Zelensky wrote.
The newly elected president pointed out that May 9 today is ‘our Day of Gratitude’.
“Gratitude for that they left the inhuman Nazi ideology in the past forever. Gratitude to those, who fought against Nazism – and won. And we should be grateful to everybody for the opportunity just to be born and to live,” Zelesnky added.
According to the report, the war touched upon every Ukrainian family, and the contribution to the victory by Ukrainian people is enormous.
“Nobody has the right to privatize this victory and to claim that it could have happened without Ukrainians. Let’s remember those, who perished away. Let’s commemorate those, who are still alive, there are only a few of them left. Congratulation on the Day of victory over Nazism! We will live!” President-elect wrote.
