Video in memory of killed police officers Artem Kutushev and Olha Makarenko published by Deputy Police Chief Troyan
Fatally wounded Dnipro City police officer was thinking of his duties whilst slowly dying, Deputy Chief of the National Police of Ukraine Vadym Troyan stated on Facebook.
"You might ask who these Dnipro City police officers were? Artem acted as a real policeman during the entire encounter with his killer. When he was gravely wounded twice, he managed to shoot at the criminal. During his last seconds alive, he was dying in his car and attempting to pass information about the crime over the radio. You see, he did not give away his gun and was thinking of his duties when dying," Troyan wrote.
Another killed cop he characterized with the words: "Olia was a light romantic person. Like many of us, she wanted to live in a better country and to change it".
Troyan posted a memorial video to honour Artem Kutushev and Olha Makarenko. The clip was originally presented on Dnipro City police channel on YouTube.
