Indonesian Ambassador to Ukraine, Georgia and Armenia for the 2017-2021 period, Yuddy Chrisnandi was awarded the Order of Merit or a special attribute of honor from Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky.
Ukrainian Ambassador to Indonesia, Vasyl Hamianin said in his statement on Sunday (4/9) that former ambassador Yuddy had contributed to strengthening cooperation, supporting Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and popularizing Ukraine in the eyes of the world. Vasyl also said that Yuddy really deserved the award. Yuddy's hard work while in Ukraine has contributed a lot to Ukraine. Even after returning to Indonesia, Yuddy continued to fight for Ukrainian independence on the basis of humanity and justice.
This was remarked by Ukrainian Ambassador Vasyl during the discussion and review of the book 'Cinta Keduaku Berlabuh di Ukraina', by Yuddy Chrisnandi. The book review, which was attended by more than 200 students, was held at the Auditorium of the University of Tangerang Raya in Banten.
Ambassador Vasyl revealed the figure of Yuddy who always worked hard by doing various things during his time as Ambassador in Ukraine. Even now, Yuddy has released three books about his experiences in Ukraine. Vasyl further said that Yuddy's work and achievement in Ukraine are unlikely to be achieved in ten years.
The latest book entitled ‘Cinta Keduaku Berlabuh di Ukraina’ is Yuddy's third book about Ukraine. This book follows the previous book, ‘Dari KYIV Menulis Indonesia’ which was launched on October 9, 2019. Meanwhile, the book 'Perjalanan Tahun Ketiga Dubes RI di Kyiv' is another Yuddy's work.
