The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, awarded the honorary award "For Courage and Courage" to the 1st Separate Tank Siver Brigade, 40th Separate Artillery Brigade, and 57th Separate Motorized Infantry Brigade.

He announced this in an evening address on Saturday, September 24.

"From the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia, the fighters of the 1st separate tank brigade performed their tasks with dignity and courage.

First in the Chernihiv direction, and now in the hottest spots of the south and east of our country," Zelenskyi said.

The President noted that over a thousand soldiers of this brigade were awarded state awards in six months.

"The units of the 40th separate artillery brigade defend the state in the Kharkiv direction and do it very bravely and efficiently.

The proven losses of the Russian army from the fire of this brigade of ours make it clear to all the occupiers that there is no place for the enemy on our land and there will be no place," the Ukrainian leader emphasized.

According to the president, the 57th separate motorized infantry brigade achieved good results this month in the south of our country – it liberated a number of settlements in the Kherson region. 

"During the period of the full-scale invasion of Russia, three soldiers in the 57th brigade have already been awarded the Golden Star order and 275 servicemen have received state awards," Zelenskyy emphasized.

We will remind, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky posthumously awarded the title of Hero of Ukraine to the senior soldier Serhii Sova.

The body of this soldier with blue and yellow bracelets on his arm was discovered during the exhumation in liberated Izyum.
