Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has greeted members of the National Guard on their professional holiday.
"In the unforgettable days of March 2014, the National Guard of Ukraine was born – a military unit that has already become legendary. It was you who were among the first to protect the integrity of the state. It was you who were among the first to repel Russian aggression against Ukraine and put a fraternal shoulder to the Armed Forces, which just began to revive at that time," Poroshenko wrote on Facebook on March 26.
"On behalf of millions of Ukrainians, I sincerely congratulate the brave warriors on the day of your professional holiday. Thank you for serving the people of Ukraine!" he added.
