Belokon 60 JT results

In the Russian internet the award of the JT of Ukrainian was just published:

In my opinion some of the awarded problems are nowadays hardly publishable, but the jubilee was satisfied enough to give 13 prizes, 15 honourable mentions and 19 commendations. The comment on this was as follows (translation by Google Translate & me):

"Принимая во внимание техническую сложность составления многоходовых задач кооперативного жанра с идеальными матами, тем более с двумя решениями, юбиляр посчитал целесообразным отметить все корректные задачи."

"Taking into account the technical difficulties of composing the multi-solution helpmate moremovers with ideal mates, especially with two solutions, the jubilee found it appropriate to award all the correct problems."

Judge for yourself.

I can’t help thinking of Tony Miles’s famous review of Schiller’s “Unorthodox chess openings”….

The 1st Prize has S mates on 3 consecutive squares, but beyond that it's hard to distinguish it from...
... which has the identical force in 3-solution form.

The 2nd Prize author, Karamaniz, has published a number of multi-line wB-minimal h#7's...
... although the nuances of this one seem distinct enough.

From the Bohemian school point of view exact echo repetition of mating position has some additional merit, so that I would not write the 1st Prize totally off.

Added later: ... based on the comparison with h# of Marcel Tribowski. There is still possibility of someone else doing it earlier.

@Juraj: Yes, the exact-echoes are merit-worthy, but deeming them prize-worthy is a matter of taste.

I totally agree with the previous statement. :)
