“For peace, for freedom, glory to all Ukrainian friends and thanks to the city of Palermo”.
This is the message written by Vyacheslav Chegatonyev, commercial director of the Odessa airport, on the book of honor of the city of Palermo signed this morning in the Palazzo delle Aquile where the mayor, Leoluca Orlando, welcomed him by giving him the official medal of the city .
Chegatonyev is in Palermo for the Aci Race event which will open tomorrow morning at the Teatro Massimo and which will see the participation of 200 delegates from over 70 European airports.
“Chegatonyev’s presence on behalf of Odessa airport is very important.
An airport that is the target, as well as the whole of Ukraine, of this absurd war of Putin’s Russia.
Palermo confirms its culture of hospitality and its solidarity and closeness to the Ukrainian people.
This meeting is also a way to imagine and prepare for the post-war period when Ukraine will finally be able to be what it deserves to be: a people who have an extraordinary dignity in defending democracy and their rights, ”Orlando said.
“I want to express my gratitude to the city of Palermo and to the mayor Orlando,” said Chegatonyev who gave the mayor the official pin of the Odessa airport.
“A month has passed since the start of the war – he continued – and unfortunately it still continues.
I have no idea when it will end, the situation for the Ukrainian country is very difficult but the Ukrainians will continue to fight to defend their freedom, to achieve peace.
I thank Italy for the great closeness and solidarity to our country and the city of Palermo for its great welcome “.
