Valerii Trofymchuk’s order was given to the widow of the deceased and their three-year-old daughter Hanna.

Valerii Trofymchuk served in the 54th separate reconnaissance battalion. The defender was killed 10 days prior to the demobilization in 2015 while performing a combat task.

“Valiera often joked that he would like to receive an order. He did receive it, albeit at such a price. We have a special shelf with his photo, his letters, a photo with his sworn brothers. This order will be placed there as well – it will be our family halidom”, – wife Halyna Trofymchuk said.
