We have built a beautiful country with you. Who did you decide to give it to? If someone wants to give the country away, even when I'm dead, I will not allow it.

Earlier, you asked me to lead our people away from the abyss. And we did it. We have built an independent state - something that many generations of our ancestors dreamed of.

Friends, I did not invite you here to protect me, although not without it. You came here so that for the first time in a quarter of a century we could protect our country, our families, our sisters, our wives and children.
