Transcarpathians launched in social networks a flashmob "Order for a hero of the 128th"
It is timed to the anniversary of the battle for Debaltseve. It was launched in the network by Transcarpathian volunteers.
The main goal of this campaign is to draw the attention of the central government. The community asks for just reward for the heroes who at the cost of their lives defended and continue to defend the country without proper attention of the government.
In February, it will be one year since the tragic retreat of Ukrainian troops from Debaltseve. That period is permanently imprinted in the memory of Transcarpathians, thousands of families were praying every day for the soldiers. All of them became real heroes, gaining fame and recognition. However, the public ia outraged by the fact that many soldiers of the 128th separate mountain infantry brigade deployed in Transcarpathia have not received orders.
In particular, this applies to the soldiers who, risking their lives, on February 6, 2015, captured an enemy's tank. The photo of seven brave men on the Russian tank T-72 was published in all the media, but a year later, the soldiers still have not received orders. "Who deserves orders more than them?" - Transcarpathians wonder.
To reach the authorities, Transcarpathians have launched in Facebook a flashmob #orderforaheroofthe128th. Transcarpathians post on their pages the symbolic photo with their own text.
Transcarpathia really hope that the authorities will not ignore their appeal and state awards will find their heroes in the near future. They urge all Ukrainian to join the flashmob and share the photo on their pages in social networks.
