At the same time, Andry Kryshchenko, the Head of the Police, stated that the memorial would remind about the police officers who “had lost their lives in the name of honor and justice”.

“The memorial will remind us that the job of a police officer is complicated and dangerous. That the police officer cannot just stop performing his/her duties. And we remember every police officer who lost life in the name of honor and justice,” Kryshchenko noted.
