A Message from the Author

TO THE UKRAINIAN PEOPLE EVERYWHERE:

EVERYONE MUST GET ELECTRIFIED,
THINK LIKE FREE PEOPLE.

WE HAVE SUFFERED FOR SO LONG SOME PEOPLE ARE AFRAID EVEN TO THINK FREE.

HISTORY WILL NEVER SMILE ON US AGAIN AS IT DOES TODAY.

THIS OPPORTUNITY WE WILL NEVER HAVE AGAIN. WE MUST GET OUR RECOGNITION FOR COMPLETE INDEPENDENCE TODAY AND GOVERN OUR HOUSE BY OURSELVES. WE WERE DEPRIVED FOR A LONG, LONG TIME. WE WERE FORCED TO USE THE RUSSIAN LANGUAGE.

OUR OWN LANGUAGE WAS RIDICULED AND LAUGHED AT. PEOPLE HAVE TO WORK AT AND INSIST ON OUR COMPLETE FREEDOM AND RECOGNITION. IF WE PERSIST, OUR FREEDOM WILL COME. WE MUST SAVE OUR COUNTRY AND DO EVERYTHING THAT IS POSSIBLE WITH ALL OUR STRENGTH FOR THE STATEHOOD OF THE UKRAINE.

WE HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO ACT STRONGLY, FOR WE CANNOT RELY ON ANYONE ELSE FOR OUR FUTURE. WE WILL REMAIN FAITHFUL TO OUR IDEALS FOR OUR INDEPENDENCE AND RECOGNITION AWAY FROM MOSCOW’S TYRANNY AND RETURN TO THE LAND OF THE FREE UKRAINE. OUR FUTURE FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE FROM MOSCOW MUST BE REALIZED. THE WORLD MUST RECOGNIZE OUR COUNTRY OF FREE UKRAINE.
