Ukraine is a multinational tolerant country in which there is no language problem. But in the east of our country there is a war imposed on us. And any citizen cannot remain indifferent. All the time we are in contact with our partners, so we decided to help our soldiers from Belaya Tserkov. On our behalf and on my own behalf, I want to convey high-quality body armors protection, night vision goggles, tents … Our partners also brought food, water and much more. We hope that it will support our guys who are defending our freedom.” Head of the Assembly thanked the mayor of the city for all the things he is doing to support our troops and for his support of national and ethnic groups of the city.
