The execution of Alexander Matsievsky: what is known

On March 6, a video was made public on the Internet , in which Russian invaders shot an unarmed Ukrainian soldier. They did this after they heard the words “Glory to Ukraine” from the soldier.

After that, there were several versions of the Hero’s personality at once. However, on March 12 , the SBU finally confirmed that the Russians shot the sniper of the 163rd battalion of the 119th separate brigade of the Chernihiv Oblast TPO Alexander Igorevich Matsiyevsky.

On the same day, March 12, Vladimir Zelensky  awarded the title of Hero of Ukraine  to Alexander Matsievsky. Three days later, the head of state presented the mother of the warrior Praskovya Demchuk with the Order of the Golden Star.

The Moldovan Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that Matsievsky was a citizen of their country. Chisinau considers the actions of the Russians a gross violation of humanitarian laws.
