President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky awarded the Order of Merit of the III degree to 83-year-old pensioner from the Chernivtsi region Mykola Shevchuk, who transferred all his savings to the needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

The decree on the award was published on the website of the head of state on Monday, November 21.

“To award the Order of Merit of the 3rd degree to Shevchuk Nikolay Grigoryevich – a pensioner, Chernivtsi region,” the document says.

Mykola Shevchuk received his order “for civic courage and selflessness shown during the defense of the state sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine under martial law, loyalty to the Ukrainian people.” 

According to ” Suspilny ” Shevchuk transferred to the Armed Forces of Ukraine savings for more than 10 years. We are talking about almost 400 thousand hryvnia.

“I appeal to all the rich: do not hide your money! Help the state, the army to drive the aggressor away,” the pensioner said.

How pensioners help the Armed Forces

In Sumy, 85-year-old local resident Mykola Ivanovich sold his property and donated $35,000 (about UAH 1.4 million) to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

And in the Kiev region, more than 20 occupiers accidentally burned down in the house of a pensioner . All of them died in a fire after a feast. Volunteers will restore the man’s house.
