Former president Viktor Yushchenko has appealed against the Donetsk regional court decision on illegal awarding Stepan Bandera with Hero of Ukraine reward, ForUm learned from the press office of Our Ukraine party.

Yushchenko believes that the court decision does not meet the requirements of current legislation and must be cancelled.

As reported, the Donetsk regional court overturned a decree posthumously awarding the nation's highest award to a nationalist leader whose insurgent army supported Nazi Germany for part of World War II.

The court ruled that former President Viktor Yushchenko's decree bestowing the Hero of Ukraine award on Stepan Bandera was illegal, as Bandera was never a citizen of Ukraine (as he died before 1991).
