Reconnaissance men honor the memory of perished combat sworn brother in Donetsk region
On 29th November 2016, warrior of a mechanized brigade’s reconnaissance troop of the Land Forces of Ukraine Junior Sergeant Maksym Slomchynskyi perished in the ATO zone while performing a combat task.
In honor of Maksym his combat sworn brothers installed a memorial plaque on the site where the courageous reconnaissance man perished. This tradition came into being in the brigade to commemorate perished defenders of Ukraine.
The memorial plaque was installed in the enemy’s line-of-sight in the live fire zone but this did not prevent small groups of reconnaissance men (lead by their commander) from coming to honor the memory of their comrade as well as all those who laid their lives for our independence.
