We Will Never Forget the Feat of Heroes!

A daily morning ceremony of commemorating the Ukrainian defenders, who died this day at different years as a result of the Russian armed aggression, has been held today. The Remembrance Bell has been sounded eleven times, two of them - in the honour of fallen reconnaissance men Serhii Nykonenko and Maksym Presniakov. They were killed in 2015, while performing combat tasks.

Maksym Presniakov was a commander of a reconnaissance company of the 93rd separate mechanized brigade. He was killed in the course of withdrawing sworn brothers from encirclement. He was posthumously awarded the order of Bohdan Khmelnytskyi, public insignia "People's Hero of Ukraine" and honorary award "For Merit to Cherkasy Region". Also, he was posthumously promoted to Major.

The awardees commemorated the Ukrainian defenders with the minute of silence and laid flowers near the Stela of Remembrance.
