The memorial was established at the same place where the car of Amina Okueva was shot on October 30, 2017. Deputy Interior Minister Anton Herashchenko, Adviser of Interior Minister Zoryan Shkiryak and mother of Okueva joined the solemn ceremony of the opening of the memorial sign.
“Today we opened the memorial sign at the place of death of real people’s Hero of Ukraine, our friend and battle sister Amina Okueva. She will always remain a symbol of patriotism, undestroyable will and fight for freedom of Ukraine and Ichkeria! Sincere gratitude to everyone who came to remember our Amina and everyone who helped to establish the memorial,” Shkiryak said.
Meanwhile, Deputy Interior Minister Anton Herashchenko noted that Amina Okueva came to the defense of Ukraine at the most horrible time and added that the perpetrators who are suspected in the murder of Okueva were detained this year. The leader of this group was born in Dagestan, lived in Ukraine and committed murders as a hitman. People who ordered the murder currently stay in Russia.
Iryna Kaminska, the mother of Amina Okueva, stated that the memorial is made as a cliff; it is made from concrete to be protected from the vandals and it is situated at the place from which Amina was shot.
“The memorial is in the form of a cliff as in the Caucasus. Unfortunately, it is impossible to bring something from there. The memorial is situated at the place from which these scums shot my daughter. I cannot say that my daughter was, she is and she will always be a warrior. There is a sign from Qur'an on the memorial: ‘Do not consider dead those who died on the way to Allah’,” she said.
