Nataliia Sedletska comments on the honour:

“This prestigious award is a significant expression of support for me and a new source of creativity for my work. The corrupt system does its best to squeeze out dissenters. So let me dedicate this award to all my colleagues and like-minded people who continue to fight and do not give up, despite the huge pressure.”
