Volunteers and Army troops are acknowledged for their service in Donetsk region
Dozens of Ukrainian soldiers got certificates of war zone participants in Zaporizhia, in south-eastern Ukraine.
Fifteen of them were granted Ukrainian state awards. All these soldiers guarded the hottest points in Donetsk region, including Avdiyivka, Pisky, Horlivka, and Donetsk airport.
The recognised Ukrainian defenders say are happy to receive the awards, but those that died at the front deserve recognition as well.
