KIEV, November 21. /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko promised to sign on Friday, November 21, an order to present the Heroes of Ukraine titles to all participants in the so-called Heavenly Hundred — those who died in the February riots in Independence Square (Maidan Nezalezhnosti) in central Kiev.
The president announced it in the Heavenly Hundred Alley (former Institutskaya Street). “Now, like never before, we should be united,” the president said. “I shall sign today an order to present the Heroes of Ukraine titles to all heroes of the Heavenly Hundred.”
In central Kiev on Friday, Poroshenko laid flowers to the memorial cross. The wreath laying ceremony featured also Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, speaker of the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) Oleksandr Turchynov, as well as the US Vice-President Joseph Biden who is currently on a visit in Kiev.
The clashes in Kiev on February 18-20 claimed lives of over 80 people, and several hundred were wounded. Among the victims were members of the Berkut riot police division. Later on, over 20 wounded died at hospitals.
Earlier, Poroshenko signed orders on celebration of the Day of Dignity and Freedom on November 21.
