Natalia Sedletska about the award:

“This prestigious award is for me an important sign of support and a source of further inspiration in my work. The corrupt system uses all its might to eliminate dissenters. Therefore, allow me to dedicate this award to all my colleagues and like-minded people who continue to fight and do not throw up their hands despite tremendous pressure.”
