At the event in the Tallinn Town Hall, Estonia, the award on behalf of the President of Ukraine was received by Vice-Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Alexander Kornienko, who will hand it over to Volodymyr Zelensky, as reported by ERR news.

Kornienko thanked the city of Tallinn and the people of Estonia for their support, on behalf of President Zelensky. “Of course, military and humanitarian aid are important, but symbols also play a significant role,” the deputy speaker said, praising Tallinn’s decision to create Ukraine Square. “Only by working together will we win this war.”
