President Viktor Yanukovych received a letter of congratulations on the 20th anniversary of Ukraine from U.S. President Barack Obama. The letter reads:
"Dear Mr. President:
On behalf of the people of the United States, I congratulate you and the people of Ukraine on the twentieth anniversary of your nation's independence on August 24.
'Twenty years ago. the people of Ukraine regained the lost independence and freedom they had long desired. All Americans, especially those who have come to this country from Ukraine, welcomed that historic event. Since that time, the United States has strongly supported Ukraine's democratic development and European aspirations and will continue to do so, and has worked to deepen our strategic partnership. On this important occasion, the people of the United States join me in celebrating Ukraine's independence and in looking toward a future of increasing opportunity for all Ukrainians.
