November 4, 2016
Forty-eight-year-old serviceman Valerii Trofymchuk, who went to fight in the East of Ukraine, was posthumously awarded the order “For Courage” 3rd class

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.
