Slava was a gifted musician and a father of two special boys. From the onset of the war, he and his wife Tania dedicated themselves to volunteering for the army and civilians in need. He enlisted 2 month into the war to defend his family and homeland, becoming one of the commanders in Azov.
The Russian orcs took his life and robbed his family of husband, son and two little boys of a father and many of a friend and а teacher.
