Censor.NET reports, citing the new police Twitter.
"Cyborg Yevhen "Marshall" Zhukov has been appointed deputy head of the patrol police department," the statement reads.
Later this information was confirmed by Interior Minister Arsen Avakov on his Facebook page.
"Major Yevhen Zhukov, better known by his callsign Marshall, former deputy commander of a battalion of the 79th Separate Airmobile Brigade from Mykolaiv, a heroic paratrooper and one of the defenders of the Donetsk airport, was appointed deputy head of the patrol police department. Marshall's personal badge number 00079 is a tribute to his dear 79th brigade, where, in his time, the main Ukrainian patrol police officer Major Oleksandr Fatsevych served," Avakov wrote.
He also added that Zhukov had successfully passed all necessary enrollment tests.
"The best paratroopers are at the service in the new patrol police. And this fact can not but inspire. Even better, if the applicant has successfully passed all the necessary enrollment tests. Holder of the Order of Bohdan Khmelnytsky (3rd class). With a cool head and clear mind. With high IQ. An honest and incorruptible person. During the fierce fighting for the Donetsk airport, which lasted longer than the Battle of Stalingrad - 242 days, Yevhen "Marshall" Zhukov stood out not only due to a brilliant military success, courage, and care towards his people, but also due to a vivid sense of humor. It was he who in his videos brilliantly mocked at the terrorist leaders for their ridiculous attempts to take the airport. Such officers, who have been at war, are needed at the new Ukrainian police! Good luck!" Avakov resumed.
