Comments

The nicknames "Cyborgs" comes from many Ukrainians viewing the defenders at the airport as superhumans, for them being able to take on the heavily armed Russian insurgents.

This coin celebrates the defenders of Donetsk Airport, known as cyborgs, who defended the airport for 242 days. Their courageous and heroic battles have come to symbolize the self-sacrificing fight for Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
