Help the family Ukraine soldier Oleksandr Pavliuk, fallen in Eastern Ukraine: wife Svitlana and two children son Maxim and daughter Oleksandra

"I feel I kind of lost myself; almost 22 years together, and the only help children to live..."

 

They got acquainted through a newspaper column "Transcarpathian kaleidoscope", and since then stayed together always and everywhere, raised two wonderful children and made plans for their future, but these plans were not to happen - the war came their way.

 

Oleksandr Pavliuk worked at a milling machine in Mukachevo at "Electron" plan; Svitlana liked his straightforwardness and kindness. He never came to the dates without surprises. After the wedding, Oleksandr decided to change job, because the plant had already closed. The advice and the example of his father and brother were useful, they were military men, and therefore Oleksandr decided to contract to the Ukrainian Army. Then the couple had a daughter, Oleksandra, and a new phase of life began.

Oleksandr Pavliuk served in the 128th detached mountain infantry brigade. Almost from the beginning of Russian aggression in the Eastern Ukraine, he was in the Donbas. First, he was in Shchastia, drove a fuel truck to the checkpoints. Then in Debaltseve encirclement, from where evacuated and saved 40 Ukrainian soldiers. During this period, he several times came for short vacations, one of which became the last.

"Oleksandr felt he might not return home. He did not have to the war zone in the East again since his chronic disease aggravated, but he told me that it was out of the question, because all of his brothers-in-arms remained there, and that he would be able to look his children in the eye if he did not go. When he left, he said goodbye to all of us, even commanded his son the garage", recalls the last moments of their meeting Svitlana Pavliuk. 

The August morning, the woman’s phone rang, that was her beloved one; that day he telephoned like knowing that this was the last chance to hear the voices of his wife and children. "It was just August 2 – St. Illya’s Day. My father is Illya, Oleksandr asked so greet him and then phoned me all day. In the evening I could hear shooting and explosions, the last thing I heard was that Sasha said he was in the dugout, then there came a blast and the connection broke. I have tried several times to break through, but on the phone, there was just silence", says Svitlana holding back her tears.

By Ukraine President Decree number 722/2015 of 25 December 2015, for "personal courage and dedication found in the defense of national sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, high professionalism, loyalty to the military oath," Oleksandr Pavliuk awarded the Order "For courage» III degree (posthumously).
