President Poroshenko signed the decrees on granting state awards to soldiers - participants of the anti-terrorist operation, including the battles near the city of Debaltseve in Donetsk region.
Many Transcarpathian soldiers are now officially Heroes, order-bearers.
In particular, in the list of recipients, there are Transcarpathian soldiers (the decree number 108/2015):
Order of Bogdan Khmelnitsky of the III degree is awarded to HORZOV Petro, lieutenant; Shaptala Serhiy, Colonel. "For courage" of the III degree - to SHELEPETS Maxim, soldier.
Among the honorees, there are our Transcarpathian heroes who have become soldiers of the Heaven Battalion. Thus, the Order of Bogdan Khmelnitsky of the III degree (posthumously) is awarded to Captain Mykola Budz. Mykola Budz died in Kharkiv hospital - he died, but he had evacuated all his subordinates intact from the danger zone near Debaltseve... The order "For courage" of the III degree is awarded to Captain Mykola Zhuk. The commander of the battery also died near Debaltseve...
