Soldier Anastasia Blyshchyk to make a film about KIA journalist Oleksandr Makhov

29.02.2024, 16:00

Anastasia Blyshchyk, a former journalist, now a UAF soldier, will produce a documentary about her fiancé, the war correspondent and soldier Oleksandr Makhov, who was killed in action in Dovhenke village (Kharkiv oblast) on May 4, 2022.

Anastasia announced this on Facebook.

She noted that on March 22, 2022, he wrote to her:

"I want a documentary, I already have the plan. It will be called "Callsign 'Journalist'."

She noted that the contest PITCHUA+ supported the idea of such a film in the category "Stories of Ukrainian Power".

Oleksandr Makhov served in the UAF separate assault brigade No. 95. He was killed in action on May 4 near Izyum, Kharkiv oblast, aged 36. In his civilian life, Oleksandr worked for the channels "Dom", "Ukraine", and "Ukraine 24".

A month before his death, he recorded a video for Anastasia Blyshchyk, proposing to her with a hand grenade ring instead of an engagement ring.

On June 23, "Ukraine 24" correspondent Anastasiya Blyshchyk spoke about Oleksandr Makhov at the opening of the photo exhibition about journalists working in wartime, The War Is Not Over Yet.

Makhov was posthumously awarded an Order "For Courage" III degree.

In December 2022, Ostrovsky St. in Izyum was renamed after the deceased journalist and soldier Oleksandr Makhov.
