Ukrainian pilot Vadym Voroshylov has been awarded the Hero of Ukraine and the Order of the Gold Star.

On October 12, 2022, Vadym Voroshylov was on a combat mission to destroy kamikaze drones in the skies over the Vinnytsia region. The day before, he shot down two Russian cruise missiles.

After having destroyed five kamikaze drones, the pilot’s aircraft was damaged with fragments of one of the drones and started to burn. Vadym managed to drive the burning jet away from the village and eject successfully.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy approved a government decree on Monday giving Voroshylov the honor in recognition of his service.
