"My heart bleeds... Roman Svirzhevskyi was killed today (May 1, 2016 - Ed.). Roman was only 21 years old. He went off to war when he was 19. It is just impossible to convey how much it hurts when you are acquainted with the person. I asked him to quit because of his poor health, but he said that his fellows were still there... I heard it many times," she wrote.
Shynkarenko noted that the soldier's body would be brought in Rivne on or about Tuesday.
"I ask residents of Rivne to pay last tribute to him... He went there so that you would be able to safely celebrate holidays here," she added.
