I heartily congratulate you on Christmas!
More than 2000 years ago, Savior came to our world. He assumed the sins of people and gave us hope for salvation. Our country has belonged to Christian European civilization for more than 1000 years already, but today it is being reborn again. Our plans to change the life of all Ukrainians for the better will come true only if we honor God and do not violate His sacred commandments. Our faith must be strong and steadfast. Then, it will be rewarded.
Christmas has always been a great and important holiday for all of us, especially for the defenders of the Homeland, the defenders of Ukraine. Jesus said: "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends". So let us pray for our warriors and may God save their lives. The deep essence of today's holiday is faith, hope, love and peace. For when angels proclaimed the birth of the Savior, they said: "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace".
I am glad that Ukraine has preserved its wonderful national traditions - Nativity scenes and carols. I hope there will be a tasty kutia in every home today. May the long-awaited God's peace come to Ukraine. May God bless every Ukrainian family and every Ukrainian.
Let us greet each other this day with the words that have been repeated by Ukrainians for centuries:
"Christ is born! Glorify Him!"
