Every year this day becomes a family holiday, because our whole community gathers in the center of the city to greet each other, gift sincere smiles, and share positive emotions! Our city is all of us, Vinnytsia citizens. Every year our city becomes even better and cleaner thanks to a community. We are further repairing roads and making habitable kindergartens and schools in winter. This year, the reconstruction of the sports complex with a 25-meter swimming pool began, and we continue to build a school in Podillia district, a regional cardio center, and a new building of an ambulance hospital in Kyivska Str. Our utilities have finished reconstruction works of Zamostianska Str. by the City Day. By the end of the year, we will make the same reconstruction works of Lesia Ukrainka Street in Korea district, Danylo Nechai Street in Old Town, and Chernyakhovsky Street in Sabariv.

Every year we see how our Vinnytsia changes. However, I know for sure that these changes will be even more noticeable and noticeable in the future. Today I would like to wish each of you peace, harmony and prosperity. Vinnytsia holds a special place in my heart. Wherever I am, I am always here this day. I always think about what else I can do for Vinnytsia. All we currently have is the work of hundreds of thousands of Vinnytsia citizens.
