Today, Ukraine celebrates Unity Day and the 100th anniversary of the proclamation of independence of the Ukrainian People’s Republic. A number of festive events were held across the state. Today the President of Ukraine also signed Decree # 12/2018 “On Awarding with State Awards”, in accordance with which reconnaissance men, in addition to warriors of different military specialties, were awarded.

In particular, warriors of the 74 separate reconnaissance battalion of the Armed Forces of Ukraine junior sergeant Horo Serhii Petrovych and senior sergeant Dovhal Anatolii Oleksandrovych were posthumously awarded with the order “For Courage” for personal courage and selfless actions displayed while protecting the state sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine as well as for exemplary performance of duty.

These courageous reconnaissance men defended our Homeland from Russian aggression. Serhii and Anatolii were killed in June of 2017, while performing a combat task in the ATO zone.

Glory to Heroes!
