Dear colleagues, friends!
The celebrating of this wonderful holiday is one of our most warm and heartfelt traditions. It has being transmitted from generation to generation, and unites all of us.
The year 2016 stayed in the past. Last year, we had to face the problems and take the challenge of serious tests related to the temporary occupation of the eastern regions of Ukraine and Autonomous Republic of Crimea. Ukraine always becomes unified and cohesive in the days of trial. The difficulties that we faced have rallied us; have prompted to open hidden reserves of our abilities to move forward into the European family.
At the same time, we have achieved a lot in the past year: our country has become something better, richer, and more convenient, insistently defends their interests in international affairs. And so, today we, in spite of everything, we are sincerely rejoice that New Year has come, and we are met it with hope and dreams of the future.
We are optimistic about the future, and sincerely believe in the best, in luck and success. And each of us understands that prosperity does not come by itself: it is achieved as a result of hard work and personal achievements, in an effort to be sure to implement the planned. Because of these achievements formed the fate of our motherland and taking care of the family, children, parents are inextricably linked with responsibility for Ukraine – for the country, where we live, we love and we want to see a successful and prosperous.
These feelings and aspirations have fastened our unity. And only together we will be strong and able to provide forward movement of Ukraine to enforce our common plans and ideas.
Dear friends! In the coming year we have to do a lot: in science, education, medicine, in improving the quality of medical services, in ensuring infectious safety, in developing of appropriate standards and in providing the adaptation of the laws within the EU-Ukraine agreement.
New Year night – a time when we understand of how close we are. And let thank each other for understanding and supporting, for love and care. In the bustle of everyday life, we rarely do it. But it is precisely the support of relatives and reliable friends always give us the self-confidence, and desire to give them more than received from them.
I wish to all of you health and happiness! Let every home will be a lot of joy, and in every family will be agreement and well-being!
