Sr. Lt. Oleksandr Markiv froever 38, 4th national Guard brigade. He passed away on an operating table 2 hours after sustaining a bullet wound to the face on September 27th, 2019. Oleksandr leaves behind a grieving wife and an infant daughter.
Because nobody really knows or cares where Ukraine is!? on outskirts of civilization Most folks thinks that it's still part of Russia. Plus there are no powerful interested parties. Take a look at the middle east, if somebody gets hit by a rock in Jerusalem, there are several news articles about the incident from all the influential outlets within an hour.
6th year of the war, despite great strides and just as monumental setbacks, even elite Ukrainian units still rely on crowdfunding and private individuals aid. Marines with a drone (I don't know what this model is and have never seen on in the USA) and Special Forces units with different nick knacks, i.e. Chinese knock offs used by airsofters in developed countries.
More of the Ukrainian military realities. Newly appointed 93rd infantry brigade 3rd battalion commander, captain soon to be major Oleksandr Sak call sign "Staff". Countless combat decorations as well as three combat wounds. Oleksandr is just 24 years age, his graduation from Military Academy was fast tracked due to the shortage of trained officers in 2015 when he was just 20 years old.
Vyacheslav Kubrak 36th Marines Brigade, commander of a combat engineer platoon succumbed to his wounds at Dnipro Military Hospital on October 11th, 2019. he was one of the few Ukrainian soldiers from Crimea who didn't betray his oath. Was awarded a highest non-government award "People's Hero of Ukraine". His personal life was also coming together, he got married back in July of 2019, but the wounds sustained from the Russian mine explosion on October 8th, 2019 proved to be fatal.
This is THE BEST video from "Azov" that I've seen so far. From about 1:38 of the video only combat footage, snipers and mortar crews. The video is titled NO TO CAPITULATION as there are a lot of concerns in Ukraine right now that the present young and inexperienced country leadership under the pressure from European leaders and indifference from the USA will lead the country towards giving in to Russian not just demands, but ultimatums.
