During the war years many people have realized the importance of our state. Military defend it from the aggressor. That is why the military salute should be to the glorification of the Ukraine. On the other hand in response “glory to the Heroes” we pay tribute to our defenders, our heroes. Replacement greetings will also be positive psychological and ideological factors. Will raise the morale of the fighters,

It was used during the national liberation struggle in the twentieth century warriors of Ukrainian people’s Republic, and later the UPA. It is our military tradition,” says Romanenko.
