The man perished near Marinka yesterday, April 30. Kutsyk was on duty at the observation post of the platoon point of one of the brigade units and carried out a combat mission.
The occupants opened fire with new Russian sniper 12.7 mm rifle during his shift. One of the bullets targeted the soldier and wounded him. The man was evacuated and provided with the first medical help, but the injuries were too heavy, so he died.
“Responsible, friendly, sincere, always ready to help and teach. Regarded with respect to his commanders, despite the fact that he was much older than them. His team respected him a lot – we will remember such Volodymyr”, the report said.
Volodymyr Kutsyk was born in Stoyaniv village of Lviv region in 1968.
As it was reported, April 30, the Pro-Kremlin militants violated the ceasefire regime 13 times, including with the Minsk-banned weaponry, in the Donbas combat zone. One soldier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine died and one more was wounded.
