On the website of the President of Ukraine petition has been published a petition to recognize Ukraine as the successor of UPR.
In particular, the text of the petition tels that after the declaration of Ukraine's independence, on August 24, 1991, on August 22, 1992, the UPR President in exile, Mykola Plavyuk, testified that by passing the letter to the State Center of the UNR to President of Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk.
The official statement of the UNR DC was as follows:
"In laying down our authority, we declare that the Ukrainian State proclaimed on August 24 and approved on December 1, 1991 by the Ukrainian State continues the national traditions of the UNR and is the successor of the Ukrainian People's Republic."
Because of his unwillingness to acknowledge Russia's occupation of Ukraine, Kravchuk refused to officially acknowledge this fact.
This creates some problems.
Yes, some Ukrainians still do not feel like citizens of an independent country, still considering themselves as "Soviet" citizens and calling Ukraine part of the USSR. Which in fact gives legitimate grounds for the existence in the country of various malignant entities of pro-Russian revanchists, collaborators.
That is why it is extremely necessary to confirm that Ukraine is not a post-Soviet country, it never was and was not first formed after the collapse of the USSR in 1991.
Recognizing this fact, President Zelensky certifies that:
- The liberation war of Ukraine against the RSFSR and then the USSR, and where the fact of Russia was neither criminal nor treasonous, because it was a just war with the invaders for independence.
- In the Second World War, Ukraine, like other nationally captured nations of Russia, participated as a hostage who was on the edge of the interests of the two cannibalistic regimes.
- Ukraine has no relation to the crimes of the communist regime. Both during World War II and during other invasive wars waged by Russia.
- Ukraine has nothing to do with the mythical triumphs of Russia and its national and religious holidays.
