Ukraine celebrates Day of Unity amid crisis

Kiev, Feb 17 (TIWN) Ukraine celebrated the national Day of Unity to consolidate people amid the looming crisis in the country.

In a televised address to the nation, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Ukrainians are different, but they all are united by the desire to live in peace, happiness and with their loved ones.  "We are all united by one desire: to live in peace, happily, as one family, with children, with parents. And we have every right to all this. Because we are at home, we are in Ukraine," Zelensky said.  Meanwhile, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said that Ukrainians mark the Day of Unity to show the "friends and enemies" that Ukraine is united even in hard times. 

"Ukrainians have rejected their differences and are uniting in the face of possible threats. For a successful future. We know how to do it, and our unity is our best weapon," Shmyhal wrote on his official Telegram channel.  Within the framework of the celebrations, Ukrainian enthusiasts unfolded a 200-meter-long national flag at the Olympic stadium in Kiev.  The blue-and-yellow flags were waved on government buildings, private houses and cars across the country to show the unity of the people.
