August 28, 2018

On the occasion of the Independence Day of Ukraine, His Holiness, Patriarch of Kyiv and all Rus-Ukraine Filaret blessed and donated to the SZRU the icon of Yaroslav the Wise.


Currently, the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine has been updating its symbols. Already at the final stage is the development of a new heraldic complex of the SZR of Ukraine: its emblem, motto, and flag.

After a collective discussion, the leadership of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine has chosen Yaroslav the Wise (a prominent state figure of Kyivan Rus, who, through his wise politics, successfully brought his state closer to the culture and way of life of civilized European peoples) as the patron saint of the SZR of Ukraine.
