On February 24, Russia tried to take away our independence, based on its sick symbolism and obsession with dates. But exactly 182 days later, on August 24, we celebrate our Independence Day, hold on and march to victory.

Friends, the authors of Mezha wish you a happy Independence Day! Be strong, be brave, and then we can all keep our independence. It never comes easily, unfortunately, we pay for it in blood, a price that cannot be justified or comprehended. However, we did not start this war, but we will definitely end it on our own terms.

Happy Independence Day! Glory to Ukraine!
