Brave and courageous commander was a role model for his subordinates and trained hundreds of scouts. He died on the outskirts of Donetsk in August 2014, carrying out combat mission.
During the visit to the family of the warrior, the Head of Cherkasy oblast council Oleksandr Velbivets asked the parents about the needs and wishes.
– Our sacred duty for the feat of the perished heroes and for the warriors who defend the unity of our country is to save Ukraine, for which they haven't grudged the most precious – their lives. They died for each of us, for the aim that our children could quietly live in peace, without fire shots and blasts, – admitted Oleksandr Velbivets, thanking the family of the perished scout.
