When Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko laid flowers in remembrance of over 100 people killed during the Maidan protests, members of the crowd heckled the president. They were angry because the president hardly speaks to the people and public appearances are rare. After this, President Poroshenko conferred the "Hero of Ukraine" status to the "Heavenly Hundred."
