The award-giving ceremony took place in Chongar (Genichesk district, Kherson region) on November 18
Held right at the blockade’s headquarters and MCd by Dmitry Lozutkin, a Ukrainian poet and composer, and Akhtem Seitablayev, a Crimean Tatar actor, the award-giving ceremony was attended by Refat Chubarov, Mejlis Chairman and Ukrainian MP, Lenur Islyamov, a blockade’s organizer, Mejlis members and Ukrainian military personnel with the experience of fighting in the ATO, including defenders of the Donetsk airport.
Reshat Ametov, a Crimean Tatar activist, who stood out against occupation and was brutally murdered, was awarded the order posthumously.
Akhtem Chiygoz, Mejlis Deputy Chairman, who has been in the FSS custody since early this year, will receive the award at the earliest opportunity.
“The award-giving ceremony was attended by both Orthodox priests and Muslim Imams, including Usein Tokhlu, Imam of the town of Novoalekseyevka. It is very symbolic that a joint prayer, conducted by Christian and Muslim priests, was held on that day,” said Akhtem Seitablayev in an interview with QHA.
Launched in 2015 by Andrey Boechko, an antiquary and volunteer, and Dmitry Scherbakov, a jeweler, the Hero of Ukraine order is a non-governmental award that is available in two variations: a red and black ribbon on a plaque, which is awarded to military personnel who defended their homeland; a yellow and blue ribbon on a plaque, which is awarded to volunteers and medics.
