‘Every day the Muslims of Ukraine not only in Kiev but also in other cities and villages during all the month share the joy with the surrounding people making iftars. We are inviting not only Muslims but also everybody who wants to support and develop relations with us. It helps to make better mutual understanding and support solidarity in society. It is used for union, togetherness, opposition to the evil, especially when religion is used for the achievement of any personal living interests. We, Muslims, represent the part of multi-national communities of the country, we are representatives of small nations; however, we are the citizens of new Ukraine which is able to be an example for the surrounding people. All of us have one purpose so as to reduce the abuse of dignity of human, to make justice triumph and keep patriotism in the soul of every citizen of Ukraine despite the fact where he was born as everybody made its contribution in the development of this society. We need each other and cannot be joyful separately’.

‘Respectful guests, on behalf of the Union of churches and religious organizations I congratulate all the Muslims with the sacred month Ramadan. It is very pleasant that we have such a tradition to share this joy every year what tells about many-year collaboration of religious communities of Ukraine. Last year the Union of churches and religious organizations celebrated twenty anniversary of its existence and collaboration the inevitable part of which is Spiritual Directorate of the Muslims of Ukraine headed by the sheikh Ahmed Tamim. Today it is very significant and insightful from the spiritual point of view day. We have started it at the praying breakfast in Ukrainian house, while it continued at the meeting of the Union of churches and religious organizations where the questions of our common interests have been put forward. We are finishing this day in a good company at the official dinner iftar. It tells that Ukraine is the land of international confessional peace, mutual understand, and collaboration’.
