On June 26, 2022, in battles for the city of Lysychansk, Luhansk Region, the commander of the Volat battalion of the Kastuś Kalinoŭski Regiment, using the call sign Brest, was killed in combat.

The relevant statement was made by the Kastuś Kalinoŭski Regiment on Facebook, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

The Volat battalion was holding back the offensive by Russian invaders on Lysychansk. The servicemen repulsed tank attacks and the enemy’s attempts to enter the city.

During the second wave of the offensive by Russian troops, the Volat battalion had to withdraw but directed Ukraine’s artillery to enemy positions. Several servicemen went missing after that.

Thanks to personal heroism and self-sacrifice, Belarusian fighters stopped the advance of a tank column, allowing for the Armed Forces of Ukraine to safely withdraw the main forces in the required direction.

A reminder that, on July 3, 2022, after heavy battles for the city of Lysychansk, the Ukrainian defense forces had to withdraw from their positions and frontiers.
