"He was a man of his word and duty" Iryna Skovorodina speaks about her husband Olexiy:
"We met in college when Alex was a student of the third year. In 1997, we married, and August 26, 1998, our son Mykhailo was born. My husband was very happy, helped in every way.
After graduation, he went to serve in Slavuta town, where our second son Arthur was born, and soon Olexiy was sent to serve in the city of Yavoriv, Lviv region.
But because of the call of destiny and, above all, at the call of the oath, Olexiy among the first soldiers of the 24 mechanized brigade left for the zone of the conflict with Russia in the Eastern Ukraine - for the immediate protection of our country from the unlawful armed groups. Being in the zone of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, he was often directly involved in the provision of first aid to the wounded comrades, standing in a part of the group of mobile communicators he was on the so-called "front end".
Unfortunately, for some reason, the best always pass away first. It so happened that August 26, 2014, during the evacuation of the wounded from the battlefield Olexiy received wounds incompatible with life. He went to save people, and was killed himself. The heart stopped beating, the heart of our comrade, a loyal friend, a beloved father and husband."
