The United States Embassy in Riga, Latvia, congratulated Ukraine on its 32nd Independence Day Today, Thursday, August 24, 2023, and reaffirmed their commitment that the United States will continue to partner with Latvia and other nations worldwide to support the Ukrainian people.
The Embassy also emphasised supporting and standing with the Ukrainian people to build a more democratic, secure, and prosperous future. They also urged people to stand with Ukraine.
While congratulating Ukraine, the President of the United States, Joe Biden, expressed his gratitude and pleasure. He said, “Independence means the freedom to choose your future.
It’s precious. Each year on July 4, Americans celebrate our Independence Day as a time to remember the price we paid for our freedom and all the blessings that flow from it. So today, as Putin continues his brutal war to erase Ukraine’s Independence and redraw the map of our world by force, Americans all across the country stand united with the people of Ukraine.
Further, he also extended his hope towards Ukraine to become a secure and safe nation for its people.
“I sincerely hope that next year, Ukrainians will be able to celebrate their Independence Day in peace and safety, knowing how their extraordinary courage inspired the world. May Ukraine’s Independence Day be a reminder that the forces of darkness and dominion will never extinguish the flame of liberty that lives in the heart of free people everywhere,” President Biden asserted.
Reportedly, the United States Embassy in Brussels wished Ukraine Independence Day. They also extended their pride that, together with their colleagues from USEU and USNATO, they have showcased their support to Ukraine and the Ukrainian people as they continue to bravely defend their country and their independence from Russia’s savage attacks.
“We remain united in our support for Ukraine’s sovereignty, democracy, and territorial integrity,” they asserted.
