Yulia Tymoshenko, presidential candidate and Batkivshchyna Party leader, congratulated Ukrainian volunteers and society on Volunteer Day and expressed confidence that qualitative changes and transformations will be possible only through the efforts of real patriots.
“The power of free people today is saving Ukraine. And only your internal freedom, your true service and responsibility for Ukraine, for our present and future, for peace and for our children, called you to this unique mission,” Yulia Tymoshenko said during a meeting of the Coordinating Council of Volunteers and volunteers of the National Forum “Transformation of Ukraine.”
The politician noted that the Transformation Forum, which brought together a team of volunteers, is very relevant, because the two Revolutions in Ukraine and the change of government did not bring the changes society expected.
“The conclusion should be made that the work does not end when freedom and peace have been achieved and you have given someone the right to govern the country. We should think about real transformations in Ukraine. And the same way you protected Ukraine with your bare hands, you should make real changes in Ukraine. Therefore, after the presidential elections in Ukraine, we should not lose a single day for such true transformations,” the presidential candidate said.
Yulia Tymoshenko also warned that there will be strong resistance to transformation from the current ruling system, which can be overcome by joint efforts.
“Only those people who sincerely serve Ukraine can overcome this opposition. Your combined authority is incomparably higher than the authority of any politician, no matter how many votes they get,” she said.
Yulia Tymoshenko also thanked the spiritual leaders and high-ranking leaders of all church denominations that were present.
“Nothing righteous in life can happen unless we rely on faith in the Lord and love. Our volunteers are also the spiritual leaders of our nation. And the fact that today there is such unity and synergy means that Ukraine has a great future. Because when everything is based on spiritual foundation, faith in God, one’s own people, power and Ukraine – I think this will bring good things,” she concluded.
