Yesterday, the Day of Ukrainian Volunteer was celebrated in our state for the first time. It was adopted by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in order to honor the courage and heroism of the defenders of Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity.
On this day, a number of festive events were held in many towns, during which a great number of volunteers (among whom were – warriors-reconnaissance men) received awards.
In particular, 31 volunteers were bestowed with awards from local authority and non-governmental organizations as well as presented with valuable gifts in the city of Cherkasy. These people, answering the call of their hearts, voluntarily joined the battalions of territorial defence, military units and the units of the National Guards of Ukraine and the Armed Forces of Ukraine during tough times for our state. The Head of Cherkasy Regional State Administration Yurii Tkachenko also presented awards to the warriors from a separate reconnaissance battalion of the Land Forces of Ukraine.
