"Condolences to the family and friends of our warrior. The sad news befell his parents at a time when both fell ill with Covid-19. Eternal memory to the Hero! " the head of Lviv Regional State Administration Maksym Kozytsky said.
Meanwhile, it only depends only on Russian President Vladimir Putin whether there will be an escalation in Donbas. Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov expressed such opinion in an interview with lb.ua.
"Whether there will be an escalation depends only on Putin. From our side, we do not plan any aggravations, because we value the life of each of our soldiers and we want everything to end as soon as possible. The president does everything in his power," Danilov said.
