The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has said in a lengthy speech, speaking on the occasion of the day of Unification on January 22. Carefully listening to its journalists drew attention to another strange clause heads of state, which he, however, immediately corrected.
The full speech of Poroshenko showed the TV channel “112 Ukraine”. After about 20:12 in the course of the video the President of Ukraine says: “And the joyful holiday Day of Unification will be for the Ukrainians with a bitter taste until the boots Ukrainian invader tramples our sovereign Ukrainian land of Crimea, Sevastopol, Donetsk and Lugansk region”. Immediately after reservations Poroshenko fix it: from the point of view of Kiev, “the occupier” still Russian.
The day of Unity is celebrated in Ukraine on January 22, because on that day in 1918 was signed to universal, which proclaimed the independence of the Ukrainian people’s Republic, and exactly a year later she was officially reunited in a single state with the West Ukrainian people’s Republic.
