«Champion of Ukraine»
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, 44, said Thursday that the 13 border guards will posthumously be awarded the title “Hero of Ukraine” – the highest honor the Ukrainian state can bestow. Silinsky said that they were going to defend the island to the end – everyone died heroically.
As the New York Post reported, the Ukrainian State Border Service lost contact with the guards late Thursday night. So it is assumed that the island is now in the hands of Russia. (bra)
