On the joint initiative of the public and teachers, as well as under the auspices of the Head of Novoukrainka town and local council memorial signs were installed in schools # 3 and #4 in honor of fallen countrymen – Viktor Harkavenko, Oleksandr Shevchenko and Viktor Karnaukh.
The memorial signs were installed at the schools where the fallen warriors had once studied. Although they perished in different wars their heroism and self-devotion are an example of patriotism and devotion to the honorary duty of a defender of Homeland.
