On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of Yurii Hrynchuk’s death, his daughter Yuliia posted in social media sites a poem dedicated to her father.
– Years pass by, but we don’t still believe that he went away, - Yuliia Mykolaievska says. – It is pity that he will not see his grandson. Artem is only nine months but he inherited a strong-willed nature of his grandfather. My son is persevering, he always achieves that he wants. He derived these personality traits from his grandfather.
