Dear companions in arms, colleagues!
An extremely complex situation that becomes a threat to sovereignty and territorial inviolability of Ukraine has arisen in Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
During recent days, armed groups acting under the Russian flags occupied Crimean Parliament and Government.
Besides, the occupations of airports “Simferopol” and “Belbek”, border guard and other units by Russian elements are in evidence.
Russian Federation military formations actions violate the range of international security agreements and guaranties.
There is no legal ground for military aggression, violation of territorial inviolability of Ukraine and reconsideration of its borders. The border of our country is unitary and sacred.
At this difficult time for the fate of our country the Board of the State Border Guard Service and the Board of Ukrainian border guard veterans appeal to you as to the defenders of the Ukrainian borders to remain faithful to the Oath to the Ukrainian people under any circumstances, under any challenges to keep military honor and remember that the Motherland is an absolute value for each serviceman. The whole Ukraine is behind your back. Your fortitude and heroism are supported by all the Ukrainian people.
Being professional servicemen, border guards, following the example of our glorious ancestor’s historical experience, we have to carry out our duty to the Ukrainian people and to protect it from armed aggression.
We assure you that the leadership of the Ukrainian state, the whole international community is working to ensure necessary support for Ukrainian border. The command, the whole State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, is with you!
All military border guards must hold the positions of their duty, remain unprovoked and take reasonable measures to protect the state border of Ukraine, to save weapons, state property and means of border protection. The main thing is a necessity to take exceptional measures to save personnel’s and their families’ life and health.
The courage, resilience and achievements of every Azov -Black Sea regional directorate soldier and officer will be adequately assessed and noted. Nobody of servicemen and their families will be left without help and protection. Logistics, money, personnel and other types of provision are guaranteed.
Those trials that fell today on your destiny, are significant and fateful. We are sure you will pass them with dignity, persistency and team spirit. Border guards never leave in trouble their companion in arms! Together till the last!
Glory to Ukraine!
