Poroshenko thanked the creative team that produced the movie and congratulated those present on the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Petro Poroshenko also presented the Order "For Merits" of the third degree to director of the movie Akhtem Seitablayev.

He stressed that due to the joint efforts of the entire Ukrainian people, he had managed to create "one of the most powerful armies on the European continent". "An army with a combat experience, for which the highest price was paid. More than 2,750 Ukrainian soldiers, including almost 2,400 AFU servicemen gave their lives for Ukraine to be preserved. For each piece of native land,".

“It is difficult to overestimate the uniqueness of the work that was done. The movie is based on absolutely accurate documentary material and made in close cooperation with our ATO heroes. And a large number of phrases and episodes are taken from real life. The name "Cyborgs", which our enemies - aggressors, wanted to use to offend us, on the contrary, became synonymous with courage, persistence and patriotism of the Ukrainian warrior," Petro Poroshenko said. "This word will be in the history of the Ukrainian army, as well as of the Donetsk airport, forever," he added.

He also added that today's premiere of the movie about Ukrainian soldiers is one of the best ways to congratulate our Armed Forces.

“Today, we know for sure that the guarantor of independence, the guarantor of sovereignty, territorial integrity of our state is the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the Ukrainian warrior. The Ukrainian soldier, which is so vividly shown in today's movie,” the President said.

In his turn, director of the movie, director of the state enterprise "Crimean Home" Akhtem Seitablayev congratulated the attendees on the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. "The fact that we have an opportunity to get up every morning, see our children, drink coffee, hug parents, it's all because of you (Ukrainian defenders). May God protect you, "he said.
