News of Ukraine: the army is a key indicator of Ukraine’s security, says the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.

“Together with our partners we strive to build a new international security system, which was destroyed by the aggressive actions of the aggressor country, the Russian Federation, and it is necessary to create a reliable protection of our sovereignty, our territorial integrity, our independence in a United Euro-Atlantic community of collective security”, – he said at the presentation of the photo exhibition “Heroes”, devoted to Day of memory and reconciliation, on Tuesday at the National Museum of history of Ukraine during world war II.

The President stressed that only a strong and efficient army is the main indicator of safety .

“The development of the army – our commitment to future generations of Ukrainians, this is our respect for the blessed memory of the victims of the Second world war and all the fighters for the Ukrainian state”, – said P. Poroshenko.

According to the President, the vestiges of the Soviet-Russian ideology have a negative effect on the morale of the Ukrainian troops. “They are messing with our heads lying propaganda cliches designed to keep us in the mental orbit of Russia,” he said.

The head of state stressed that in 4 years Ukraine has implemented a number of effective steps that would strengthen her national identity.
