The relevant statement was made by Priamyi TV channel, referring to Oleksii’s wife Tetiana, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Oleksii joined the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and was killed in Kharkiv Region on September 8, 2022, when liberating Balakliia. He did military service in 2015-2016. Participated in battles for Marinka and Pisky. In August 2022, he received officer shoulder straps. Commanded a platoon of grenade launcher operators,” the report states.
