MOSCOW, January 28, 0:27 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has posthumously decorated police senior sergeant Dmitry Makovkin, who died when trying to stop a suicide bomber at the entrance to the railway terminal of the southern Russian city of Volgograd last month, with the Order of Courage, according to a presidential decree posted on the official legal information website on Monday.
Two suicide bombings killed 34 people and injured more than 70 others in attacks on a railway terminal and a trolleybus in Volgograd on December 29 and 30, 2013.
The award was bestowed upon Makovkin “for courage, valor and selflessness” he had displayed. The Order of Courage was also given posthumously to inspector Sergei Nalivaiko.
Besides, Putin’s decree gave the award to two other policemen who survived in the attack, and bestowed another award, the For Courage medal, upon a few other police officers and inspectors.
