Deep Honour and Boundless Gratitude to the Defenders who Gave Their Lives for Ukraine!

Today, a daily morning ceremony of commemoration of the Ukrainian defenders, who were perished this day at different years as a result of the Russian armed aggression, has been held at the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine. The event has been attended by the representatives of the leadership of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, officers and employees of the Defence Ministry and the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the National Guards of Ukraine and servicemen of Kyiv garrison.

The Remembrance Bell has been sounded today twenty-six times, one of them – in honour of fallen reconnaissance officer from the 128th separate mountain infantry brigade Major Vitalii Postolaki. He was posthumously awarded the order of Bohdan Khmelnytskyi.

The attendees paid the tribute to the memory of the Ukrainian defenders with a minute of silence and laid flowers near the Remembrance Stela.

We will never forget the deeds of the Heroes who gave their lives for the future of Ukraine!
