 Soldiers and volunteers awarded with ‘People's Hero of Ukraine’ decoration in Poltava. PHOTOS

The awards ceremony, where the heroes of the undeclared war - combatants, volunteers, doctors - received public decorations, took place in Poltava Feb. 10. Some heroes were awarded posthumously. The "Hero of Ukraine" decoration was instituted by the people themselves. The people raised silver for decorations, put forward candidates and awarded them.

Censor.NET reports citing the statement of the 30th Separate Guards Mechanized Brigade.

"One of these heroes is master-sergeant Serhii Ulitenkov. He is a real man's man, a patriot, a loyal friend and brother in arms reliable in any circumstances. These are the words his colleagues and friends speak of him. He has authority either over subordinates and the command of the battalion and military base.

"He directly participated in the battles for the Savur-Mohyla height, villages of Stepanivka and Minusinsk, held the line in Bokove-Platove, Krasna Poliana, Iliria, Lutuhyne, Pisky, Debaltseve, and Luhansk. He was always at the fore-front," the statement reads.
