In his New Year’s speech, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky mentioned the oligarchs, gas prices and the land market.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he stated this during a New Year’s address to Ukrainians.

“We lived this year together. And we spend it together. This year was different, and there were things I would like to forget. But there were those that I want to remember among my family and friends,” the president said.

In particular, he recalled how “our athletes performed coolly at competitions around the world, and tears appeared in front of our eyes on sofas across the country.”

The head of state reminded how Ukrainians rejoiced at every medal of Olympians and Paralympians, cheered for boxer Oleksandr Usyk, the Ukrainian national football team at the Euro and Ukraine’s representatives at Eurovision.

“It seems that they won every medal together. They ran next to them, swam the pools and fought with Belenyuk. How everyone joked that for the first time a politician and MP does not export, but brings gold to Ukraine! …”, – added Zelensky.

He also noted that this year Ukraine celebrated its Independence Day for almost a week, and the celebrations on Independence Square were attended by more than a hundred leaders and representatives of countries from around the world.

And not Ukraine’s partners. Everyone who came to share the joy with us became a friend of Ukraine. And everyone who saw the parade of our army and “Dream” over Khreshchatyk, became a fan of Ukraine. But most importantly – who we are. Even more in love with Ukraine And more confident, more adult, we are finally united not by evil, but by holiday, we are learning to unite, we are learning to unite not against someone, but for ourselves, we are learning to respect each other and ourselves, so we do not wait until the world will solve our problems and someone will return our land for us, “the president said.

In particular, he clarified that Ukraine “gathered the world” for the liberation of Crimea and this year “Crimea is Ukraine!” the voice of not only Ukraine, but 46 other participants of the “Crimean Platform” was heard.

According to Zelensky, Ukraine has returned Crimea to the world agenda, so that one day we can say, “We have returned Crimea to Ukraine,” and return all prisoners.

“And how did we scare the oligarchs? For the first time they are afraid of the law. One law. They are so afraid that they scare us all. They scared us that we will freeze. But gas prices for our citizens have not risen. And that’s a fact. They scared us to be hungry. And for the first time, we harvested more than 100 million tons, a record for an independent state.

By the way, they collected it on the land, which was to be taken out by wagons. At least that’s how we were scared. But the land market started. Millions of Ukrainians have become real owners of their land, “he said.

The head of state stressed that all Ukraine’s international partners spoke positively about the launch of the land market, saying “they were afraid that they would turn away from us.”

As UNIAN previously reported, in the last minutes of 2021, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky addressed Ukrainians with New Year’s greetings.
