President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy presented the Golden Star Orders to the servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine who were awarded the title of Hero of Ukraine and the members of the families of the servicemen who were posthumously awarded this title.

The ceremony took place at the Mariyinsky Palace in Kyiv.

"We are in the place where the leadership of our state met with the leaders of other states before the war. This place is called the White Hall of the Mariyinsky Palace. I also had meetings with many leaders of states whom this war showed as friends and partners or vice versa. And from today I have the great honor to award the best here. You are the leaders for our state," said the President of Ukraine, addressing the Heroes and members of their families.

He added that from now on this hall will be called the White Hall of Heroes of Ukraine and those who have been awarded the title of Hero of Ukraine will be awarded here.

"I am honored to see you here today. Unfortunately, I cannot see all those Heroes perished in the war, in the struggle for our independence against the Russian Federation," the Head of State said.

"I want to thank everyone. I want to thank those who are not here with us today. Who are on the frontline, defending our country from the Russian occupier everyday," the President added.
