Putin awarded the Order of Zhukov to the 239th Tank Regiment. According to Meduza, its servicemen may be involved in the killings of civilians in Bogdanovka

The 239th Guards Tank Red Banner Order of Zhukov, Suvorov, Kutuzov and Alexander Nevsky Orenburg Cossack Regiment was awarded the Order of Zhukov by decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The decree on awarding state awards , published on June 15, states that the 239th regiment received the order “for mass heroism and courage, fortitude and courage shown by the personnel of the regiment in combat operations to protect state interests.”

The 239th Tank Regiment featured in Meduza’s investigation into crimes committed by the Russian military in Bogdanovka, east of Kyiv. This village was under the control of the Russians for about three weeks, and during this time at least three murders and two rapes took place there.
