To Commemorate the Hero

This decision was taken on June 10 during the meeting of the Kyiv City Council. Most part of deputies upheld this decision.

Hero of Ukraine (posthumously) Major-General Maksym Shapoval tragically perished on June 27, 2017 as a result of bold terrorist attack planned by Russian special services. The garden square, situated at Povitroflotskyi Avenue, 11-13, in the Solomianskyi district in Kyiv is named after him.

From the first day of his officer service until his last breath, Maksym Shapoval served in the military intelligence. His courage and bravery, patriotism and loyalty to his affair are an example for all employees of the military intelligence Ukraine.
