“To erect a monument to the Hero with a capital H, Tymofiy Mykolaiovych Shadura, a soldier who was not afraid to say "Glory to Ukraine!" to the enemy's face at his last moment, for which he was brutally shot by the Russians. Install with a signature: “And the time will come when one will say: Glory to Ukraine! And millions will respond: Glory to the Heroes!” - S. Bandera,” the author Oleksii Yakovenko said.
The petition proposes to install a monument on the site where Lenin once stood.
For reference. The information provided by the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the soldier's identity is preliminary. He may be a soldier of the 30th Detached Mechanized Brigade, Tymofiy Shadura, who has been missing since February 3, 2023. He disappeared near Bakhmut. However, this information is not final.
On March 6, a video of the execution of a Ukrainian soldier who was captured by the Russian forces was posted online. In the last seconds of his life, the Ukrainian prisoner said "Glory to Ukraine!". The Prosecutor General's Office announced the launch of an investigation into the shooting of an unarmed man. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the Prosecutor General, the head of the Prosecutor General's Office, the Foreign Minister, and the Ombudsman responded to the Russian war crime.
Earlier it was reported that the shot Hero was recognized on the video by his sister.
On March 7, the Ukrainian Armed Forces preliminarily named the soldier who was shot dead by the occupying forces for saying "Glory to Ukraine."
US State Department spokesman Ned Price, commenting on the video of the shooting of a Ukrainian soldier, called such actions barbaric.
Ukraine is already looking for the Russians who shot an unarmed prisoner of war. The occupying troops deliberately recorded and released a video of the execution of a Ukrainian defender.
