The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has congratulated his compatriots on Victory Day over Nazism in World War II and compared Vladimir Putin’s aggressive policy to Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.
Ukrainian leader Petro Poroshenko has congratulated the population on May 9 by posting the text of his congratulation on Facebook.
'On May 8, 1945, after a six-year war the long-awaited peace was established in Europe. Europe now is facing an unprecedented violation of international law, which hasn’t been so strong since Hitler and Stalin’s times. Ukraine is fighting back again,' the head of the state wrote.
According to the politician, the key difference lies only in the fact that the enemy has come not from the West but from the East.
'Glory to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the National Guard and volunteers; to all the power structures that protect our motherland from enemy attacks of the Russian Federation!' he added.
Moreover, the President urged to praise all those who defended Ukraine from aggression on the part of the Nazi Third Reich.
'Glory to Ukraine!' Poroshenko concluded.
Poroshenko spoke at the First Minute of Peace in the Museum of the Second World War.
In addition, Petro Poroshenko and his wife Marina took part in events dedicated to the Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation and the Day of Victory over Nazism in World War II.
