11.05.2016. “Heroyika” decided to build a monument “Crimeans who died in the fighting for the unity of Ukraine”, in a southern region of Kherson.
During the Russian-Ukrainian war of (2014-2016) over 3,200 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed in combat with the enemy. Among them are at least 21 natives of Crimea, who defended the independence and sovereignty of the Ukrainian state.
Given the fact that the Ukrainian Crimean heroes cannot be honored in their occupied homeland – “Heroyika” decided to build a monument “Crimeans who died in the fighting for the unity of Ukraine”, in a southern region of Kherson.
During 2016, we received all of the necessary permits from the Ukrainian authorities and 26 October 2016, on the E-97 road, 6 km from the Russian occupation checkpoint, our construction work has begun. As of November 5, 2016 the project is near 60% of completion. The total construction budget of the monument is $ 2,400. We have raised over $ 2000, but still require funds to finalize – landscaping, installation of flower beds, providing drainage, construction surveillance and more.
