The President of Ukraine has expressed his deep condolences to the families of the fallen Ukrainian soldiers and border guards who died on June 14 while conducting anti-terrorist operations.
“On Sunday I declare a day of mourning for our military. This is a great loss not only for the families of the fallen but for the entire country. Ukraine is grieving, but we will resolutely continue the struggle for peace,” Poroshenko said.
“All those involved in the cynical terrorist attack of this magnitude will be punished without fail. Ukraine needs peace. However, the terrorists will receive a proper response,” he said.
The President is convening a meeting of the National Security and Defense. He has instructed the Cabinet to provide assistance to the families of the deceased.
