Former Siberian citizen Yevgeny Knyazev, who saved 70 people from the fire in the World Trade Center, was given the highest award of the Kemerovo region post mortem. Regional governor Aman Tuleyev handed the medal “For special contribution in the development of Kuzbass” to his mother Valentina Knyazeva, who now resides in the town of Polysayevo.

Yevgeny Knyazev died under the rubble of the enormous building saving other people.
