Yana Kaminska, wife of 26-year-old officer Maris Kaminsky, killed near Avdiyivka on February 3, 2017, has posted a poignant statement in VKontakte. Yana is expecting their first child:

Dear friends, I want to thank you for sharing our pain, and the loss of a beautiful, bright, and sincere man. Thank you everyone who was there with us, everyone who prayed and grieved with us. I know many people accompanied my beloved to his resting place. I couldn’t look into your eyes as I wasn’t able to tear my own eyes away from my husband’s face. I bow my head in sorrow; my heart and soul know no rest… I pray that you will never live to bear such pain. It cannot be expressed or measured…

I want to ask you to remember my husband and pray for his child, which lies near my heart. This child longs for his father and wants to live.

Dear friends! Appreciate every passing moment! Death and pain walk beside us. May the Lord protect you all! Make each other happy because you don’t know if your last action was the last in your life.

You know, people go from day to day without realizing what real happiness is. I knew my love for two years and I can say that we lived a period of true happiness. We lived together only four months… it was so quick, so short, but these were the sweetest months of my life. But, the most beautiful thing that happened to us is when we got married and joined our hearts forever.

You know, my darling, I am yours forever. Today we kissed for the last time. It was the sweetest kiss of my life. This kiss will be on my lips forever… and your scent still lingers in my hair.

He didn’t want to leave us and go to war, but he gave his life for all of us so that peace would finally come to our Ukraine.

I pray to God for this war, which has destroyed hundreds of lives, to come to an end. I pray that parents, brothers, sisters and children no longer have to bury their men.

I stand and cry loudly: “No, I am not a widow! I am the beloved wife of Maris Kaminsky, a soldier and a Hero.”

Heroes Never Die!

Maris Kaminsky was laid to rest on February 8, 2017 in his native town of Kivertsi, Volyn Oblast. Photos (Volyn News, Kivertsi Information Portal):

    It tears my eyes and tears my heart to read your precious words,

    Yana Kaminska, may God hold you in his hands and give you and your baby the comfort and strength that you deserve in your time of sorrow. Your husband is a hero in every sense of the word. I don’t know whether your Bible has this quotation, but ours says:

    “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his comrades.”

    Just know that tears are rolling down my face for you, your husband and your baby.

        Yeah I got banned from Schengen for a year and then another 5 years not long after that. It gets lifted in September, so I’ll probably go back for a visit sometime then. LOL”

        ‘Mike’ and ‘Suzanna’ now appear to run a site called imperial news, which immediately banned me. It is a kremtroll site.

        • zorbatheturk

          these posters on UTUSA have always seemed dodgy. Probably expat russkiy kremtrolls posing as triple agents and getting their comment quotas filled. Mentions of Guantanamo and the like smack of kremtroll whataboutism. And the main poster says the Euromaidan was an EU setup… another typical kremtroll thing is to pretend to be an American.

          • Scradje

            Totally agree.

          • slavko

            I can say this much… my eyes are open, am not buying “face value” but looking for “intrinsic value”.

            Btw, found this article and thought you guys might be interested in it.

            Putin poodles are everywhere. What is bad for the West is good for RuSSia according to FSB logic. The kremtrolls need to achieve a set level of posts and also a certain number of ” followers ” on social media, so a fake news disqus channel might be one way to do it. Of course there are plenty of kooks out there who by being anti everything end up being pro-Russia. But, you know, private posting histories, endless comments without much real substance to them, excessive mentions of Russia and Putin, too many weird claims to be a ” Dane ” or ” American ” etc. and it begins to look rather suspicious. The RuSSian aim is to muddy the waters so that real information is obscured by a lot of fake rubbish. I don’t think anyone makes thousands of posts saying the same thing or not much unless they are being paid to do so. The Kremlin is spending millions ($) on these trolls.

          • Scradje

            I saw that article too. Good piece; although it is incorrect about Wilders. In fact he is a major kremlin shill, no better than Le Pen. He has stated on YouTube a number of revoltingly bogus ‘facts’about Ukraine. More recently he tried to cast doubt on the Dutch findings about M17.
            Returning to the main theme of the article, Nigel Farage used RT extensively over a period of years a) to promote his Brexit position b) to promote his hatred of the EU and desire to see it destroyed c) to glorify fuehrer putler and himself. No doubt he was paid well for it; that makes him a major kremlin asset, just like his leftist allies Assange and the grisly Labour leader CorbLenin.

          • slavko

            To say the least, Le Pen, Wilders, Farage, Putin and his company of trolls are all about creating divisiveness on the planet. In fact they are equal to the Islamic terror mobs that are creating such pain among their own in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Their whole agenda is to PREVENT people from coming together. And if it’s going to be forced… then it just ain’t natural!!

          • Andrew Chmil

            Consider spreading (& archiving for future use) that article around….

            I know a young Ukrainian university student, who had friends protesting at Maidan in 2014 and he told me that the Americans got the revolution going. I asked him how much did his friends get paid by the Americans and of course he said the Americans did not pay them, but helped in organizing. I have met other young Ukrainian students who had similar attitudes and a couple who were 911 truthers and told them that one of the purposes of RuSSian propaganda is to make you confused and apathetic. I got an upset response from them. They get into a internet site and get their heads screwed up. I speculate from their other statements that these students were also causal marijuana users,. The millennials are a bit confused, not just in the west.

          • zorbatheturk

            RuSSian propaganda makes me want to grab a baseball bat and brain somebody, preferably Vladimir Putin.

        • Andrew Chmil

          they must know you :)

          • Scradje

            I don’t quite understand that comment?

          • Andrew Chmil

            Sorry for mot being clear!
            They “know” you can’t be FOOLED & are not a sucker.

            Also, if they have not banned you already from the “mole-troll site”
            — “Ukraine Today USA” — where you POLITELY (or did?) point out things…
            — like their TROLL articles …

            … on any “new troll site” — they can & WILL BAN YOU INSTANTLY,
            before you do the same thing there.

          • Scradje

            Right. I will continue to read their sites and click comments I like, but for my own comments I think I will stick with more reliable sites like euromaidan press from now on! Bloomberg also has good articles; it’s a pity that the comments there are infested with kremtrolls.
