This was reported by Arsen's friends and comrades-in-arms on Facebook.

"Our Arsen Fedosenko is gone... A friend, a colleague, a very talented person... There are no words to describe the pain and despair of this loss... Only 9 days ago, we met at the Book Arsenal, where Arsen told me about the StratCom project he and his colleagues were doing for this event, Stories of Those Who Chose to Fight," wrote Serhiy Klimov, a friend of the deceased, owner of the Uwines portal.

The death of the photographer was also reported by soldier and designer Taras Ishchyk.

"He died like a hero, because he was one. RIP, Arsen, thank you for everything we did together," he said.

Former MP Boryslav Bereza said that Arsen Fedosenko was a very talented man and a master of his craft. He joined the Armed Forces in the spring of 2022.

"He smiled and took photos. At the first lines. A military photographer always risks his life so that we can see more. Many of the photos you saw in StratCom's feed are his work. He showed us all the faces of Ukrainian heroes in pixels. He was... The word "was" is terrible. The Russians killed him. The bombs," Bereza wrote.

According to Klimov, Arsen will be buried in Kyiv. 

The last post on the photographer's Facebook page was dedicated to the journalist's day.

"To be open. To accept and let other people's pain pass through you. Maintain objectivity. Earn the trust of the interlocutor. Remember everyone you talked to last and their dreams. To do everything so that we know the heroes and do not forget the enemies," he signed the post with his own photos.
