Address of the SBU leadership on the occasion of the Day of honor of liquidators of the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster
On the Day of honor of liquidators of the consequences of the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant accident we remember the tragic events of Chernobyl. Years are passing but still we have the response of the atomic disaster in our hearts.
We bend before the liquidators of this horrible accident. We remember those who sacrificed their life and health, protected us and the whole world from nuclear hell.
Not only firemen and station workers but also servicemen of different specialties, builders, drivers, doctors and our colleagues – officers of the state security agencies got through that hard examination. All of them acted heroically and selflessly.
Gratitude to the heroes, commemoration of the fallen, care and help to the injured is the least that we can and must do.
The holy duty to protect own country became the inheritance of generations. In such bad times to our country, we have to be together and remember what unifies us. The Chernobyl disaster remained in history. We will fight against our today’s trouble.
Dear liquidators of Chernobyl Nuclear Plant accident! I wish you and your families good health, happiness, welfare, peace, good and harmony. Let the gratitude for your good deeds always be with you!
Obeisance and imperishable memory to the fallen liquidators! Our sincere gratitude and respect to those who are alive!
