Ukraine National Day

Ukraine National Day

The U.S. Embassy in Senegal sends best wishes to the people of Ukraine as they celebrate their Independence Day. Sadly, this year, the date also marks six months of Russia’s full-scale invasion of your country.

The celebration of Ukraine’s national day is an opportunity for us at the U.S. Embassy, and friends of Ukraine from around the world to show our continued support for Ukraine and its sovereignty.

We are resolute that a democratic, prosperous, and secure Ukraine is in the interest not only of the people of Ukraine, but also of the United States and the international community.

Today is also an opportunity to recognize and respect Ukraine’s unique cultural heritage and its important contributions to world culture.
