"She is the concertmaster, the first cello of our opera and ballet theater and The Seasons chamber orchestra Iryna Tomchuk. She was on her way to work with the husband (plays the French horn in the same theater): they have a house or a dacha not far from this Byk. For some reason, I do not know why, they pulled over. And a bus with the children (a dance group), taking them to a performance, emerged. The funeral ceremony will be held in the theater on Tuesday," he wrote.
