Yuriy Yamshchikov, a young ATO soldier, was laid to rest in Pavlohrad (Dnipropetrovsk Region).

His family, friends, comrades-in-arms, residents of the city and the mayor came to pay tribute to the young hero.


24-year-old Yuriy Yamshchikova died on October 30, 2015 in the village of Pisky during a combat mission.

Yuriy joined the Armed Forces of Ukraine on February 16, 2015. He served as deputy commander of a combat vehicle in the 93rd Mechanized Brigade.

Ten native sons of Pavlohrad have been killed in eastern Ukraine since the beginning of the war.

    Look at that. A funeral held in daylight in the open with people allowed to openly mourn the Ukrainian hero……kind of sad to see why Putin’s “Russian values” don’t allow this type of public celebration of life for his Russian terrorists…..I guess that’s the difference between a growing democracy and a mafia run terrorist state.

    It is sad to see one of our heroes killed and buried. Especially since he died defending Ukraine from russian attackers. May that russian swine who killed him burn in hell.
