“He was killed on October 10 near Bakhmut: he was moving from dugout to dugout and came under mortar fire. Doctors tried to save him but did not have time. My brother was very selfless. He always hurt everyone. He always tried to help everyone around him: his family, friends, and animals. He had a big heart,” says Vitaliy’s sister Natalia Lymar.
