Journalist Dmytro Rybakov killed in action
"The war keeps taking away the best among us. Dima 'Reporter' surprised everyone, first with his insight and knowledge, and then with his bravery and courage. You never know how a person will behave in battle: some will freak out, some will fight like a lion. He fought like a lion and died like a hero. My friend, rest in peace! We will have to do the rest without you..." wrote Oleh Sentsov.
