Government thanks MH17 emergency workers

Next week the government will be expressing its appreciation and gratitude for the emergency workers and volunteers for their efforts following the MH17 plane crash. The government will be conveying its appreciation in the form of a commemorative medal.

Emergency workers and volunteers have been involved in providing aftercare in all sorts of ways following the disaster. They have worked under trying conditions with respect for the victims and sympathy for the surviving relatives.

Individual arrangements

The government has asked the emergency workers (organisations) to present the commemorative medal to the relevant people shortly after receiving it. The emergency workers (organisations) will be free to decide how this is to be done.
