Babich's brothers in arms and friends also commented on his death.
"Together with you, we wrote 'Pass Me The Weapons,' 'Strength and Weapons,' 'Enough Sad Songs,' 'Freedom is Like Love,' 'Molfar,' 'Those Who Hold The Sky Over Christmas.' We have one song left, which we were supposed to release just the other day – 'Don't leave.' I would never have thought that it would become our farewell in this life," singer Ivan Lenyo wrote on his Facebook page.
