I am happy that this very moment we, the entire Orthodox world, are praising the Son of God and looking with faith and love at the prospect of the new year, which we hope will bring us lots of joy, health, peace and grace on our land," Yanukovych said.

The president wished happiness, new hope and confidence in the future to every family.
