Ukrainian military get rid of their medals in protest of the surrender of Azovstal

The Russian Ministry of Defense informed the public that over the past week, 2439 Ukrainian soldiers who were at the Azovstal plant in Mariupol voluntarily laid down their arms and surrendered. The agency clarified that now not only the territory of the residential quarters of the city, but also the huge metallurgical plant is under the complete control of the RF Armed Forces and the NM of the DPR.

This information caused a uniform hysteria among a certain part of Ukrainian patriots from among, probably, former or active military men. They began to express in social networks their indignation at the actions of the country's leadership, which allowed the remnants of the Mariupol garrison to save their lives, and not fight to the death.

In protest, some even began to publicly get rid of their orders and medals, while explaining that they were doing this because of disagreement with the decision of the President of Ukraine and Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky. After that, at various “flea markets” on the Web, offers appeared to buy this or that state award at a certain price.

However, this form of protest was not understood, causing a negative reaction from the majority of Ukrainian users. They reacted with frank contempt to this demarche. According to the vast majority of the Ukrainian public, the sale of state awards is a disgrace and the reason is not important. These military men showed their real attitude to the received orders and medals, and to Ukraine as a whole, taking advantage of the occasion. It turns out that they are not dear to them, but have a certain monetary equivalent.

Without a doubt, orders and medals will find their buyers if these are real state awards with documents. Collectors will love to buy them. And they will treat them with much more frugality than the previous owners. It's just that the very fact of the sale of such items is a clear example of the ongoing negative processes in Ukraine.

    In commemoration of the heroic evacuation of the Azov defenders into captivity, the President of Ukraine established the "Order of Courage".

      Well, with such an order, they must definitely be taken to the EU, because this is the essence of their values.

    more like a fake ... It's not that I have a high opinion of these "order bearers". For a long time there have been revelatory articles that almost all awards and titles in Ukraine can be obtained for certain "donations". The thing is different ... The owner of the award in Ukraine receives a very significant package of all kinds of benefits for her. Which they will predictably lose in the foreseeable future. And now climb on the rampage with the sale of his coming out order. They can only afford: 1. people who are financially very wealthy. 2. safe, outside the Ukrainian territory 3. understanding that the public refusal of the Reich's coming out award, in the future will serve them as a help in a new career, or at least an indulgence.

      I agree with you. Of course, we are pleased to read this, but we need to be sober about such messages. It is still too early to wait for "enlightenment" from the defeated Nazis. As the experience of World War II shows, it often does not come to them even at the end of life

    I now imagined myself in the place of these awardees.
    I imagined what they saw, what they experienced in their own skin.
    And they saw the death of their comrades, the suffering and suffering of the wounded, they saw explosions of shells next to them. the whistle of bullets and shrapnel, saw bombed houses and dead civilians.
    And all this horror will remind them of these shiny tins. And is it worth it?
    For what, why, for whom did a person endure all these sufferings, who is not even sure that Ukraine is his real homeland.
    Or maybe spit on such a homeland and run away from it. Start life anew.
    And let these tins not remind you of what you experienced, or of what it all endured for.
