Slomchynskyi, 22, died of the shrapnel injury he received during yesterday’s mortar strike near Avdiivka, the Donetsk region.

Censor.NET reports citing the statement by the Back-and-Alive volunteer project.

"The guy originally hailed from Bila Tserkva, served as a scout and has been defending Ukraine since 2014. Maksym was trained to be a UAV operator six months ago," the statement reads.


The vicinity of Avdiivka's industrial area was fiercely shelled all day long on Nov. 30.

"The Russians are using heavy weapons. The enemy has been trying to break through our defenses near Verkhniotoretske and Panteleimonivka for several weeks. Our servicemen repulsed all their attacks," the volunteers wrote.
