Yosypiv was an active participant in the EuroMaidan revolution. He eventually volunteered to fight at the front in eastern Ukraine.
Upon returning from the army, Yosypiv joined the ranks of Kyiv's police. Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk was on hand to great the newly appointed policemen and women.
