As reported by Censor.NET correspondent Violetta Kirtoka, the funeral was attended by hundreds of locals and comrades of the fallen fighter.
Serhii received fatal injuries in a massive artillery attack by Russian troops. The position of his unit was hit with a 152-mm howitzer shell. Being in critical condition, Shadskykh managed to call for help and stay conscious.
Serhii Shadskykh was an operator of Fagot anti-tank missile system, having a big number of destroyed enemy equipment in his record.
On April 14, 2016, Shadskykh made one of his most spectacular launches, destroying two enemy Ural trucks with mortars with a single shot.
