The memorial represents a cross in the colours of the national flag of Belarus.

The memorial site was inaugurated on Biloruska Street in Kyiv on March 28.

The memorial is a sculpture in the shape of a cross with the colours of the national flag of Belarus; the centre of the cross bears the historic coat of arms of Belarus – Pahonia (charging knight).

The memorial is dedicated to Mikhail Zhyznevsky, who was killed by a sniper bullet on Hrushevskoho Street on January 22, 2014 and Oles Cherkashyn and Vitaly Tilizhenko, volunteers in the tactical Belarus unit, who fought in Donetsk Oblast and perished in the battle of Starohnativka in August 2015.

Vichnaya Pamiat! Eternal Memory!

Dear readers! We need your help. COVID-19 has hit independent media outlets hard, but even more so in Ukraine, where most outlets are controlled by oligarchs. To make matters worse, several English-language media sources from Ukraine have closed recently. And even worse, this comes at a time of troubling government tendencies and amid a pro-Russian resurgence in Ukraine.  Help keep us online and reporting on the most important of Ukrainian issues for you in these troubling times, bringing the voices of civic society to the forefront of the information war. Our articles are free for everyone to use but we depend on our readers to keep going.  We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget and have no political or state affiliation.
