Stepan Chubenko – for which the militants tortured and killed a Ukrainian patriot
In 2014, Stepan took part in rallies in Kramatorsk in support of Ukraine’s integrity. During the shelling of Kramatorsk, the young man helped the elderly to go down to the shelter, and he also removed the DNR flag from the city square.
Militants captured Stepan Chubenko in Donetsk in July 2014. Then he returned from Kiev to his native Kramatorsk. The teenager was found with a blue-yellow ribbon and a scarf of the Karpaty football club. Stepan was taken to the village of Gorbachevo-Mykhailivka, where he was brutally tortured for several days and then shot.
In the fall of 2018, the Dzerzhinsky court of Donetsk region sentenced in absentia militants Vadym Pogodin, Yuri Moskalyov and Maxim Sukhomlinov to life imprisonment for the murder of Chubenko. The killers are currently probably hiding in Russia and the occupied Crimea.
Posthumously, Stepan Chubenko was awarded the title of People’s Hero of Ukraine, he was awarded the Order of Courage.
