The worst thing was to survive the first few months after his death, I just did not perceive the reality, had no idea how I would handle everything myself ", says Larysa, wife of Yaroslav Babych, fallen Ukrainian soldier.

Therefore, from the beginning of active events on the Maidan, he did not stand aside, but actively participated in all events. "One night my husband came home and said that he could not just sit down and work when in the centre of the city people were killed. He said that it was necessary to contribute for a better future and do what he did best - provide legal assistance and protect people in the courts", says the fallen soldier’s wife.

But one July day (25 July 2015) the Babychs family suffered a tragedy. Yaroslav was found dead in his own apartment. "When I found out about it (his colleagues called me) I just could not believe it. I am sure that my husband was killed and the suicide was staged", says wife Larysa. The woman says that for a few months she did not tell children the truth that their father was gone, because she could not understand it. "The kids loved him, it’s now terribly hard for us, it is necessary to do everything myself, work and raise their children, but the health gives up, the pressure is constantly rising", continues Larysa.
