“Today I signed a decree conferring the title of Hero of Ukraine on Andriy Kuzmenko,” Zelensky wrote.
President noted that Andriy Kuzmenko would have turned 52 today. He also reminded that since the beginning of the war Kuzmenko regularly traveled to the east and helped our defenders.
“Every Ukrainian has a good memory connected with Kuzma's songs. He left a trace in everyone's heart. He taught us not to forget and call our real friends from the old photos, to come to see mom to sit together in the kitchen for hours. And, of course, he taught us not to be ashamed of our land, because everyone is a country itself,” Zelensky added.
It is noted that the relevant decree № 323/2020 was signed by the president on 17 August.
