"He signed two major decrees on rewarding our defenders. At the request of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, 210 combatants were awarded, three of them posthumously. At the request of the Interior Minister, 255 soldiers of the National Guard were given state awards," said the president.
Also 41 border guards, 12 of them posthumously, and 45 policemen were awarded.
