War in the Donbas

Translated by: Christine Chraibi

As Ukrainians and the world celebrate the New Year and television channels broadcasts soothing news from the front – no victims – we are suddenly and bitterly reminded that war is again knocking at our door.

Nazar Holyuk, a soldier from Netishyn (Khmelnytsky Oblast) serving in the Aidar assault battalion was shot by a sniper in Horlivka (ATO zone). The bullet passed through Nazar’s heart …

We express our sincere condolences to the family and relatives of the deceased hero.

His memory will live on in hearts of Netishyn townspeople. Eternal glory to the heroes!

We will inform you about the time and place of Nazar’s funeral.

P.S. As of noon tomorrow and the day after, the Netishyn Self-Defense Unit will be collecting funds to help Nazar’s family.

Dear Ukrainians, do not be indifferent! He died to bring peace into our homes!
