President calls for reconciliation among all parties participating in WWII

Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych emphasizes the importance of finding ways towards understanding and reconciliation among all parties to the tragic events of the Second World War, he said during the ceremony marking the 68th anniversary of victory in the Great Patriotic War, the press service of the head of state reported.
“We should look for internal peace and tranquillity in the dialogue between the Ukrainians who were separated by the war into warring camps. Each party must try to understand the other one. We should understand that we need to be together, live in one country, build a common future,” Yanukovych said.
According to him, the Nazi and Soviet totalitarianism are things of the past forever. “Democracy, freedom and social justice, spirituality, life and potential of each individual are our common values of national progress,” the President said.
According to him, one of the main lessons of the war is that the strength of the Ukrainian people is in its unity. “Our state has made a long and hard way. And today we can say we have preserved the unified and diverse Ukraine, restored its statehood and laid the foundation for its future in the circle of the developed European nations,” Yanukovych stressed.
