President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has posted on Facebook congratulations on International Women's Day.

"In my childhood years, on March 8, men gave women flowers and talked about how, with their love, beauty and care, they inspire the 'strong gender' for feats. But in fact, women themselves perform feats, every day. They defend their homeland, teach children, treat patients, and save lives, manage companies, make scientific discoveries, and create art. They manage to combine work, family, friends, leisure, sports, self-development, and charity, while still remembering where we, men, put our stuff," Zelensky wrote in his address.
