And the confirmation is in front of you. I will just say - these are the children of the heroes who did not regret their strength, health and even life for the sake of the country. Their parents truly protected the blue and yellow colors. Thanks to him, we began to treat our flag in a different way. Happy Holidays! Glory to Ukraine!
