Eternal memory to ‘Lesik,’ Ghost Brigade fighter & Odessa communist

Slava died …

By Alexey Markov
Deputy Commander, Ghost Brigade (Prizrak)

Sept. 25: Glory to “Forester”, aka “Lesik.” A high-spirited guy originally from Odessa, he was in Slavyansk, then — from the autumn of 2014 — in our Volunteer Communist Detachment. In this photo, taken during our first combat alert, we had not even managed to obtain uniforms. Three days ago, he died at the front in the area of Bahmutki [in the Lugansk People’s Republic]. Blown up. 

Today he was buried. All day long it rained without stopping. The ceasefire is worthless here…
