Parachutist Badge.

Photo taken from a Ukrainian soldier's obituary. Private Horoshko served in the 80 Air Assault Brigade and killed in the Donbas in November 2020. Badge resembles its Soviet precedent minus the red star on top and inscription on the cupola. He appears to have a "10" affixed to the body.

Re: Parachutist Badge.

They did a huge work of de-sovietisation of all state symbols, including state awards, and recetly the uniforms. But there still remains some traces of soviet times...
