Killed in their own home

Олександр Кононов

When the war came to Luhansk region in 2014, Oleksandr Kononov volunteered. He delivered water, food and medicine to Ukrainian positions. At that time, he had been living with a disability for almost ten years after injuries in the metal industry – he had no right arm and left leg. He spent 98 days in captivity “in the basement” in the “LPR”, where he was tortured. 

He rebuilt his life in the Zhytomyr region. He bought one of the long-abandoned houses, transported goats and sheep there, and started a small goat farm with a cheese factory. There we met Oleksandr Kononov, from where we brought a big reportage in 2016. This man is a powerful energy and a constant movement. At some point, Oleksandr returned to his native Donbas. He started life again. 

A full-scale Russian invasion cut it off. Oleksandr was killed in his own house. Just in a wheelchair. Eternal memory to the real Ukrainian of Donbass. 

We will not forgive. Death to the enemies!
