Roman Ratushnyy bequeathed his money for the development of "Historical Pravda" – Kipiani
Vakhtang Kipiani, editor-in-chief of the "Historical Pravda" website, said that he had received money from the mother of the deceased activist Roman Ratushnyy, which he had bequeathed for the publication's development. Kipiani intends to use the money to establish awards for young authors.
Kipiani announced this on his Facebook page.
"Yesterday, like many, I cried. Roman Ratushnyy was my personal hope for a change in the city and the country. The russkies killed this hope. Svitlana Povalyaeva told me that her son had respect for what we do. And as a fulfillment of his will, money from Roman and his friends was transferred to my card today. And I'm crying again. We have a duty to work off that trust," Kipiani wrote.
"My first thought: on behalf of Historical Pravda, I want to establish several Roman Ratushnyy Awards for young authors, given for publications on the history of Kyiv and the preservation of the capital's historical heritage," he said.
As IMI reported, on June 9, head of NGO "Let's Save Protasiv Yar" and a scout of the 93rd Separate Mechanized Brigade "Kholodnyy Yar" Roman Ratushnyy was killed in a battle near Izyum (Kharkiv reion).
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."
