"With Alexander’s death all our dreams have died and the life has lost the meaning. I know that I have to raise her son, who is even harder than me..." 

"A wonderful husband, father and friend. He always supported and helped me in every way. We were a happy family, but now, I remained alone with our son, he remained without a father, and I remained without my dear one", says Olena Cherniavska, the wife of a fallen Ukrainian Army soldier Alexander Cherniavsky of the 12the detached regiment of operational support. 

Alexander and Olena saw each other for the first time at the age of 10, while resting in a summer camp. Their next meeting happened 8 years later. 

Then the youth decided to stay together. And soon, they got married and celebrated the birth of their son, who was named Ivan. 

"After the birth of the son we became even closer. We spent time together. Alexander and Ivan taught me to fish and I taught them to collect mushrooms. We spent much time enjoying outdoor activities. And also, my husband was fond of growing flowers. We had a lot of different plants at home, our friends were amazed with this and came to see what Alexander plated this time", says the wife of the deceased Ukrainian Army soldier, fallen in Russian-Ukrainian war in the East of Ukraine. 

Alexander Cherniavsky served in the Ukraine Army by contract in the 12th detached regiment of operational security. And a few months after the Russian aggression, his regiment went to the East, to the Donbas.

"In the evening we talked with Alexander and he said he would go on a mission in the convoy to the area where there was no connection, so I would not be worried. He was to return my call, but it did not happen. Instead, my brother called and said that Alexander went missing in the area of Russia-Ukraine conflict. First I did not believe it, I called his commander and he confirmed that there were losses - wounded and dead, but my husband was not among them. He was found only a few days later and taken to the morgue in the Dnipro. And before that I had a phone call from Alexander’s phone number; some separatist called me and said that Alexander was not alive", says Olena, the wife of a fallen Ukrainian Army soldier. 

Alexander Cherniavsky died on a mission while convoying a column, while convoying a column, which was by-way from town Debaltseve to town Luhansk; the column fell into an ambush near the village of Nyzhnie Lozove.
