On June 9, head of NGO "Let's Save Protasiv Yar" and a scout of the 93rd Separate Mechanized Brigade "Kholodny Yar" Roman Ratushny was killed in a battle near Izyum (Kharkiv reion).
The public organization announced this on their Facebook page.
He died while performing a combat mission.
"Romchyk was our best, a courageous man who was always first in any battle and never showed fear. It so happened that in his last battle he was on reconnaissance patrol as part of a combat group and died while performing a combat mission," the statement says.
On July 5, Roman would have turned 25 years old. He took part in the Revolution of Dignity at the age of 16, was a public activist and head of NGO "Let's Save Protasiv Yar."
From the first day of the full-scale russian invasion, Roman has been participating in battles near Kyiv, and then, as part of the 93rd Brigade "Kholodny Yar," he liberated Trostyanets, fought in Sumy region, and near Izyum.
"We became an organization thanks to him. Despite this severe loss, we will continue Roman's work, we will continue to change and develop our society, our country, we will continue to fight for a Great United Ukraine. We will definitely build a park in Protasiv Yar. A park where we will plant an oak tree to honor Roman. A park which will surely be named after Roman Ratushny," the organization said.
The date of the funeral will be announced later.
