" Despite severe risk, all three survived the mission, and, in 2018, were awarded the Order For Courage by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko."

One of them died in 2005 from heart condition so he was awarded posthumously. Two others are still alive.

Regarding the three divers... I read somewhere (hardly I would be able to find it again) that the three men considered it their duty

There are recent interviews with two of them, for example here: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9298446/chernobyl-diver-averted-second-blast-devastated-europe/

Here Ananenko does in fact state that they didn't consider it an act of heroism and that they were just doing their job.
