Pavliuk was killed in the militants' offensive operation in Avdiivka's industrial zone on Jan. 30. He was posthumously awarded Third Class Order for Courage.
The deceased soldier was born in the village of Petrivka in the Kirovohrad region. He worked in Azerbaijan after graduating from a college in Kompaniivka. Pavliuk returned to Ukraine just at the beginning of the Russian aggression and was drafted into the army the same year.
The farewell ceremony was held near the monument to the Heroes of Ukraine. It was attended by more than 500 Kompaniivka residents. The soldier was buried in Petrivka village.
Pavliuk, 36, was survived by the wife and a five-year-old child.
