Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine O. Turchynov’s Greetings on the Day of the Foreign Intelligence of Ukraine

Dear Intelligence Officers and Veterans! I sincerely congratulate you on your professional holiday!

This year’s centennial jubilee of the Ukrainian Intelligence will be celebrated for the first time at the state level. A hundred years ago in the turbulent times of the national liberation struggle, in the Ukrainian People’s Republic was created the first unit of national intelligence as an important and needed institution of an independent country.

Today, when our state and the Ukrainian nation are being hardened in the conditions of severe trials and losses, Ukraine’s intelligence officers show high professionalism, dedication and patriotism, valorously performing dangerous tasks, disclosing the aggressor’s plans and intentions.

To you courage and invincible spirit of intelligence officers, faithfulness and love for the Motherland, reliability and dedication are not just ordinary slogans, they are your daily work, full of deep meaning. It is these personal and professional qualities that are a reliable guarantee of Ukraine’s consolidation, liberation of the occupied territories and our victory!

I am sure that you will continue to deserve the distinguished title of the intelligence officer, multiplying the best traditions of Ukrainian special services!

From the bottom of my heart I congratulate you on your professional holiday! May God bless you, your families and our Ukraine!

Glory to Ukraine!
