The coherence of the Ukrainian national team at the Invictus Games, which was acquired in such a short time, should be a symbol for the whole of Ukraine, which now, more than ever, needs such unity, President Petro Poroshenko has said.

He stated this on October 3 during a ceremony to present state awards to Ukrainian veterans of the national team who took part in the Invictus Games competition in Toronto, Canada. 

"In such a short time, you have become such a powerful team - very coherent. You trust each other. I think that this should be a symbol for the whole of Ukraine, which also now, more than ever, needs unity," Poroshenko said.

The president said that "when there is unity, there are victories, and when there is trust, there is unity" and thanked the Ukrainian team for their wonderful performance.

The head of state presented the Order of Merit (1st degree) to Pavlo Budayevsky, the Order of Merit (3rd degree) to Oleh Zimnikov, Pavlo Mamontov, Roman Panchenko, Vasyl Pashkevych, Oleksandr Pysarenko, Valeriy Rak, Vadym Svyrydenko, Dmytro Sydoruk, Oleksandr Tkachenko, Serhiy Torchynsky, and Serhiy Shevchuk.
