Dmytro Sydorko, who ran the "Ukrainsky Nastup" Telegram channel, killed near Bakhmut
21-year-old Dmytro Sydorko, who ran the "Ukrainsky Nastup" Telegram channel, died in a battle with the Russian occupiers near Bakhmut. His colleagues have initiated a signature collection to rename a street in Kyiv after him, reports ZN.ua.
Dmytro's colleagues note that he died last week in a battle with "Wagner" PMC militants and was able to eliminate several of them.
"We want to preserve the memory of him, and you can help us in this. The street in Kyiv where Dmytro lived all his life is named after the Soviet Belarusian poet, Yakub Kolas. Of course, this is unacceptable, as this street should bear the name of one of the best sons of Ukraine," writes "Ukrainsky Nastup".
It was Dmytro Sydorko who came up with the watermelon meme and the watermelon flashmob – having watermelons in avatars and logos on the occasion of Kherson oblast's right bank being liberated.
You can sign the petition to rename Yakub Kolas street, where Dmytro lived, after him in the Kyiv Digital application or on the KCSA website.
Dmytro Sydorko was the only child in the family, and for the last four years he studied at KNEU, majoring in law. In the first days of the Russian invasion, Dmytro went to war as a volunteer. He died on November 22, repelling a Russian attack near Bakhmut. "Preserving his memory on plaques near the place Dmytro called home is the least we can do for him," reads the petition on the KCSA website.
Help us be even more cool!
