As reported by Censor.NET, a statement of the People's Hero of Ukraine project on Facebook says that two weeks ago they announced the names of those who, by the decision of the Award Council, were nominated for awarding them with the Order of the People's Hero of Ukraine. After this, the candidatures have openly been discussed by the public.
"Besides, the People's Hero awardees were interviewed about one of the awards granted to activists after the meeting of the members of the Award Council. This was a clear manifestation of democracy and desire to make the activities of our Mission fair. Therefore, the final decision on who will be awarded in Dnipro was supported by 184 People's Hero of Ukraine awardees.
"We also must inform the general public that the details on re-election of members of the Award Council, which has been operating for two years now, will be announced in the near future. This decision was made by the Council members themselves with the view to increase the efficiency of the future work of the People's Hero of Ukraine project. It will be the People's Hero of Ukraine awardees who will nominate the Council members. This is imminent," the statement reads.
