Six volunteer fighters killed near Avdiivka over the weekend

A vigil for the six recently killed Ukrainian soldiers took place this Sunday in Kyiv.

Nearly two hundred people gathered at the Maidan to pay their respects to the fallen fighters.

All of the dead soldiers were volunteers thus not serving in the regular Armed Forces of Ukraine.

However, members of the public still saw it fit to organise a remembrance action for those who gave up their lives for the safety of others.
