President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has awarded Colonel Serhiy Hubanov the title of Hero of Ukraine (posthumously). This is mentioned on the website of the President's Office.

Hubanov is the veteran of Donbas conflict; when the hostilities began in spring 2014, he served with the Ukrainian police in Luhansk region. 

"We lost the legendary commander of Luhansk-1 battalion. Serhiy Hubanov was one of these Luhansk-based policemen who did not abandon their loyalty oath to Ukraine. He dreamed of watching the yellow-blue banner unfurl over Luhansk. The day will come, and this dream will come true. Eternal gory to our hero!", Zelensky commented.
