Your Excellency, On behalf of the people of Ukraine and on my personal behalf, I sincerely congratulate you on the Independence Day of the United States of America.
We highly appreciate the decisive support of our state by the United States in the difficult for us times. The interaction between Ukraine and the U.S., especially in the recent months, has demonstrated that we are reliable partners.
Your personal attention to Ukraine, hard work of your Administration and powerful support of the American public have assisted the people of Ukraine this year to win the right to choose our own course of development and protect our European choice.
I’d like to express my sincere gratitude for the United States’ leadership in mobilizing the international support to Ukraine. We count on continued fruitful cooperation in the implementation of reforms enabling Ukraine to occupy its proper place in the family of democratic nations.
I am certain that by joint efforts we will continue strengthening the relations of friendship and strategic partnership between Ukraine and the U.S. in the interests of our peoples and for the benefit of global democracy and peace.
I avail myself of this opportunity to wish you, dear Mr. President, good health and continued successes in your activity, while I wish peace, wellbeing and prosperity to the friendly people of the United States.
President of Ukraine
