President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and Prime Minister of Denmark Mette Frederiksen, after negotiations in Kyiv on September 6, opened a plaque with the name of the head of the government of the Kingdom of Denmark in the Alley of Courage in Constitution Square.
This was reported by the press service of the Chancellery of the President.
Zelensky recalled that the names of those who were with Ukraine and supported Ukrainian society in the difficult times of the full-scale Russian invasion are engraved on the Avenue. In particular, Mette Frederiksen visited our country in April 2022, and this year at the end of January, together with the President of Ukraine, she visited the Odessa and Mykolaiv oblasts, the restoration of which was taken over by Denmark.
Volodymyr Zelensky noted that Ukraine stopped Russian aggression thanks to the Defense Forces, the Ukrainian people and our partners.
“I want to thank Mette Frederiksen. As the leader of her people, she was with us from the very beginning of this fight for freedom and independence. The Prime Minister of Denmark was with us in the most difficult moments. And this is the third visit to Ukraine during this war." – said the President of Ukraine.
Zelensky also emphasized that Mette Frederiksen's visits always result in concrete support for Ukraine on the battlefield, in the economy and in the humanitarian sphere.
“We started a tradition on the Avenue of Courage so that the memory of such nations, societies and leaders who unite nations will not be erased in history, but will remain with us forever. And this is one of the elements of Ukraine's gratitude for the fact that Mette and strong people in Denmark have been with us from the very beginning", said Volodymyr Zelensky.
Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen visited Ukraine on Wednesday, where she visited Bucha near Kyiv, which was occupied by Russian forces in early 2022, and gave a speech at the headquarters of the Supreme Council (parliament) of Ukraine.
According to the Danish media, the prime minister saw an exhibition of photographs documenting Russian war crimes in Bucza, which is located in the local church. Frederiksen's visit was not announced in advance for security reasons.
In August, Prime Minister Frederiksen, accompanied by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who visited Denmark at the time, paid a visit to a military base in southern Jutland, where she announced the transfer of 19 F-16 multi-role aircraft to Ukraine.
