The soldiers from Dniprodzerzhynsk were captured during the encirclement of Ilovaisk in last year August.
Both Yarovyi and Shevchenko stayed in touch and informed about their captivity. Later they discontinued communication with relatives.
The soldiers' bodies have recently been found and taken to Dnipropetrovsk by Ukrainian volunteers. The servicemen were decapitated and dressed in winter clothes. DNA analysis helped to identify the bodies.
Junior Sergeant Volodymyr Yarovyi is pictured below on the left, Junior Sergeant Volodymyr Shevchenko is on the right one.
May the memory of the fallen heroes live forever! Dniprodzerzhynsk residents will remember their names eternally.
