Read in Russian

LUGANSK, September 6 (Lugansk Media Centre) - Lugansk People’s Republic Head Leonid Pasechnik has awarded the Hero City title to the LPR capital.

“On this significant and solemn day, I signed the decree awarding the Hero City title to Lugansk,” Pasechnik said at a ceremony at the Lenin Culture Palace marking the 224th anniversary of the founding of Lugansk. “I’m sure that our long-suffering land and its residents deserve this high and honorous title for their glorious, hard and diligent work and fight.”

He handed in the Hero City title certificate to Lugansk administration head Manolis Pilavov.

“Let me thank, on behalf of all city residents, the Head of the Republic for appreciation of Lugansk residents in defending the rights and freedom of our land,” the official said adding that the city would continue to work towards the good of the Republic.

On July 10, Pasechnik signed the degree establishing the procedure for awarding honorifics, such as Hero City, City of Military Glory, and City of Labour Valour to the Republic’s towns as well as the provisions on the Commission which reviews petitions requesting such awards.

The LPR parliament approved the 1st and 2nd reading of the law on Lugansk People’s Republic honorifics earlier this year.
