People from Vinnytsia oblast will rename the square in honor of the hero-scout

Compatriots of Kostiantyn Mohylko plan to name one of the city squares, which must be repaired by that time, in honor of the courageous pilot on the occasion of the second anniversary since his death.

Kostiantyn Viktorovych Mohylko was the commander of the reconnaissance aircraft, which Russian terrorists shot down on June 6, 2014, over Slovyansk. When the plane began to fall on the residential areas of the city, the Ukrainian officer, at the cost of his own life, directed the plane beyond Slovyansk limits.

According to the Decree of the President of Ukraine from June 20, 2014, Kostiantyn Mohulko was posthumously awarded the title of the Hero of Ukraine for exceptional courage and heroism, invincible spirit in the struggle for an independent Ukrainian state and loyalty to the Oath of Allegiance.
