The presentation of awards on behalf of the Ukrainian National Information Service (UNIS), part of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America - the largest association of Ukrainians in the United States - has already become a tradition. The awards are given to politicians, diplomats, activists for their efforts in favor of Ukraine.
In previous years, such awards were presented to Senator Bob Menendez, Congressman Brendan Boyle, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius, and Ukraine's Ambassador to the United States Valeriy Chaly.
