Transcarpathian border troops received the Colours
Today in Chop, on behalf of the President of Ukraine, the Head of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine Viktor Nazarenko presented the Colours to Chop and Mukachevo border guard detachments. Those are the next border guard units that have received the Colours. Recall that some border guard detachments received the Colours during the March of Independence from the President.
The head of the Border Guard Service presented the Colours to the heads of the border guard detachments colonels Ivan Chaplinsky and Volodymyr Parshikov. The personnel of the both border guard units watched the ceremony on the parade ground.
More than 900 soldiers of those detachments took part in the antiterrorist operation in eastern Ukraine. Over 30 border guards were honored with the highest state awards, three of them - posthumously.
