TV cameraman from Cherkasy, Pavlo Tymoshenko, killed in action
Pavlo Tymoshenko, a cameraman for the Cherkasy branch of "Inter" who enlisted to defend Ukraine with the beginning of the full-scale war, was killed near Vuhledar (Donetsk oblast).
On February 6, his colleague Stanislav Kukharchuk, a correspondent at "Inter's" Cherkasy branch, announced this on Facebook.
“Bro, you shouldn't even have been there with your health issues and three children... The law does not provide for this, but you were among the first to step up for your home and your country. And you were fulfilling your duty to the very end! For 12 years, you have been like a second family for me at our small Cherkasy office, you and I shared everything – lunches, dinners, business trips, joys and troubles... But I will no longer be able to hug you or just say hello on the phone: you died, died, defending Vuhledar, which is so far from your home. Pasha, a part of my life, which I dreamt of resuming after our Victory, vanished together with you. Bro, if only you knew how much I will miss you..." Stanislav Kukharchuk wrote.
"If only you knew! Stanislav Kukharchuk, Pavlo Tymoshenko, News on 'Inter'... How I wish for these words to ring out on the air again, but nobody will hear them again – because, unfortunately, heroes are dying, and that hurts a lot. Rest well, my friend..." he wrote.
As Pavlo Tymoshenko's colleagues told the IMI representative in Cherkasy oblast, for the last 12 years he had been working at "Inter" together with Stas Kukharchuk. Before that, he worked at "1+1". Pavlo Tymoshenko studied at the Kaniv School of Culture.
According to IMI, Pavlo Tymoshenko became the 45th media person to die as a result of Russian aggression in Ukraine. Of those, eight died while performing journalistic work, 37 died as combatants or were killed by Russian shelling, not in the course of their journalistic work.
Help us be even more cool!
