On September 12, 2021, in the area of the Joint Forces operation in Donbas, a Ukrainian marine was killed while performing a combat mission. This is reported by the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Facebook.
"As a result of the shelling, sailor Artur Holub received injuries incompatible with life," the message says.
The command of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the entire personnel expresses sincere condolences to the family and friends of the deceased soldier.
Meanwhile, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov is confident in the ability of the Ukrainian army to return Donbas and Crimea by force.
"Our Armed Forces are able to clear the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. We can fight for the territory of Crimea. But it must be borne in mind that we cannot allow tens, hundreds of thousands of people to die during such military operations. Because we just have an understanding of where this border is. But this does not mean that, if necessary, we will not use it," Danilov noted.
