On Saturday, July 4, Kyiv hosts the oath ceremony of new patrol police.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk addressed the new policemen and underlined that Ukrainians trust in them, "They want you to protect their family and their children. They want to be sure that the new beautiful Ukrainian police will have a great respect from the citizens of Ukraine. Not just respect to uniform, but to everyone of you."

"You have to earn it. And people are anticipating this from you," he said.

"We together with the President, the Interior Minister will do our work. And our job lies in providing wages, vehicles, equipment, social guarantees, while yours is not just changing the name from militia to police, but to make every citizen be proud of new Ukrainian police. And we are sure that you will manage to do this," Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed.

The Prime Minister has noted that 2,000 patrol policemen who will protect citizens in Kyiv is just the beginning: "Then from city to city, we will move forward, so that new Ukrainian police came to every town, every village, so that everyone in the country felt: I am under the protection of Ukrainian police."

Arseniy Yatsenyuk expressed gratitude to Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov and First Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Eka Zguladze and Head of the education program of new policemen Khatia Dekanoidze - "incredibly talented, beautiful, intelligent Ukrainian women."
