Andriy Shikht, senior lieutenant of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, one of two twin brothers, was killed near Mariupol on Friday, December 11, 2015.

Andriy was only 24 years old. He studied at secondary schools No.2 and No.3 in Truskavets (western Ukraine), and later graduated from the Petro Sahaidachny Military Academy in Lviv.

Residents of Truskavets lined the streets to pay tribute to their deceased hero. People stood or kneeled in the streets, candles and lamps shone in the haze as the funeral car made its way through the city centre, escorted by members of the Automaidan and the Drohobych regional volunteer community. A parastas (solemn liturgical service for the repose of the departed) was held  near Andriy’s family home. Many people could not hold back their tears…

Andriy was buried at 13:00 on December 14… one of many originating from this region.

Vichnaya pamiat! Eternal memory! Heroes never die!

    Yet another young man with his whole life ahead, killed by RuSSian occupiers with RuSSian weaponry on his own land. Putler and his fellow scummers need to pay for this and all their many other filthy crimes.

            Vladimir
            Ionov, a 75-year-old Russian citizen says it all about the mentality of most
            citizens in The Russia: Putin Exists, You Don’t Have To Think.
            Shame he has to spend his last years in prison for being honest. He who was happy to see freedom the past 25 years be taken away from all in The Russia. Pity for common Russians.

            Man without English is a nekulturny ignoramus. English is the lingua franca of Business and Science.

      They will pay. If not here, then after the final judgment when they stand before Christ who knows everything and lies will no longer save him, or his cronies.
