Donetsk district administrative court cancels decrees on awarding Hero of Ukraine to Bandera
According to him, Bandera is not a citizen of Ukraine, since he died in 1959 before Ukraine gained independence in 1991.
The judges agreed with the plaintiff and confirmed that "those who died before 1991, could not be citizens of Ukraine and decided to uphold a complaint against the Ukrainian president's decision to award the title of Hero of Ukraine to Bandera, recognize his decree as unlawful and cancel it."
The court's ruling can be challenged at the Appeal Court of Donetsk region within ten days.
