Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

2014 is getting over. It was full of rapid revolutionary changes, anxiety, bitter losses. Yet we strongly believe that Ukraine can overcome with dignity those incredible difficulties that fell to its lot, and will head towards the European future, becoming an example for other states. This belief is constantly with us, as we have passed the most important exam — we have passed through the hardest of ordeals and proved that we are united in our aspiration for liberty. We are ready to repel any attacks of those who dare to infringe the integrity and sovereignty of our country.


In only a few days we will hear New Year and Christmas greetings. We will be wishing everyone happiness, success and prosperity. However, we should first of all wish each other health and peace, as they are the only key to the realization of all other desires. May all of you — students, graduate students, professors, university employees — live under a bright and peaceful sky, be healthy, happy and successful in the New Year!
