Help the family of Vasil Baloh, Ukraine Army soldier, who died in the Russian-Ukrainian war: wife Inna and two sons - Vasyl and Kyrylo


FAMILY

"Vasyl was good, like an angel, I believe he has become one" 

I can say for sure that I am happy that God gave me a husband like my Vasyl. I was very happy about it. He was a very good man, a loving husband, a caring father. During his stay in the Russian intervention area, he never an opportunity to visit us on holiday, although he had almost every day hoped that he would come soon. He had never refused to help anyone, everyone loved and respected him. But the war took my happiness from me", this is the first thing that says Ina Baloh, the wife of fallen Ukraine Armed forces officer, Captain of 128th detached mountain infantry brigade Vasyl Baloh. 

After the wedding, the young family moved to the apartment, which was left for them by Vasyl’s parents. His father was a military man, so this was the determining factor for Vasyl in choosing a career. "When our first little boy was born, my Vasyl always helped me. At night, when I was exhausted and tired to the land, he stood up to the child, sang lullabies, soothed. Then my husband was transferred to serve in Vynohradove, and he was coming to us only on weekends. When it became possible, Vasyl took us to him, I signed a contract with the Ukrainian Armed Forces and together we began to serve in the same military unit", shares her memories Ina. 

Inna remembers that when they had just moved to Vynohradove, where Vasyl served there were times when they even had nothing to eat and nothing to sleep on. "There was one soldier's bed in which our little boy slept. But we had always supported each other and never had any complaints about the complicated life. Then I began service in the Army, we have more money and the things went better. When I was pregnant for the second time, my husband was with me during the labour. It made us much closer together ", says the wife of the deceased Ukraine Army soldier. 

When the war in the East of Ukraine began, Vasyl Baloh together with his crew went to the Donbas to defend Ukraine. "My hero did not have an opportunity to see us. He spent in the zone of Russian-Ukrainian war almost 5 months... Every time we talked on the phone, he told me how he loved us. How he wanted to get home... But it was not destined. On the day of his death Vasyl called me and said that he might soon be able to come to us, I heard shelling but he reassured that it was far away. That was our last conversation and his last words were: I love you and our children. But after 15 minutes he was killed. A splinter hit him right in the heart", says Inna holding back tears. The woman said that she heard the tragic news from her deputy commander of the brigade. "I was so shocked; I almost do not remember that felt then. This moment is all as if in the fog", says the wife of the deceased. 

It has been almost three years since Vasyl Baloh died, but the hero's family - wife Inna and two sons: 13-year-old Vasyl and 4-year-old Kyrylo still cannot accept that their husband and father is gone. "They say that time heals, but this only can say those people who have not experienced this loss. You are trying to get out of this state, go to work, you begin to communicate with people, from the outside it seems that everything is forgotten. But still, in the evenings, when the kids are sleeping, you look at his photo and the tears start rolling down. In the morning, when you come to work they ask you: why are your eyes swollen, you reply that your baby does not let sleep", says Inna Baloh. 

The state helped the family of the deceased Ukrainian soldier by providing an apartment and paying compensation. The children: Vasyl and Kyrylo - are growing rapidly, they need seasonal clothing and footwear, and 4-year-old Kyrylo needs funds for the services of a child psychologist and a speech therapist. Also, the boy needs orthopaedic shoes, for flat-valgus foot treatment. And also, the experts advise to attend dolphin therapy to accelerate the healing process. So let us together take care of Vasyl’s children, whose father died in in Russian-Ukrainian war.
