Hundreds of inhabitants of Kirovohrad came to honor the memory of defenders of Ukraine. There were the representatives of authority, the relatives of the fallen heroes, children and veterans.
The insignia “For Courage and Bravery” were received by the relatives of heroes who were posthumously awarded. To see young women who lost their husbands and who are receiving the insignia now, grandparents who said goodbye to their favourite sons and grandsons forever, little children who have never already seen their fathers and brothers, it was really difficult. All were weeping that day; even the journalists were not able to restrain the tears.
The inhabitants of Kirovohrad who were presented at opening ceremony laid the flowers on the memorial of the fallen warriors of ATO with next words “Immortal memory and eternal glory to the Heroes!”
