Former Ukrainian athlete Oleksandr Serbinov died defending Ukraine from the Russian occupiers.

Serbinov suffered fatal shrapnel wounds in battles with the occupiers on Kharkiv region.

This was reported by the official website of the Ministry of Youth and Sports of Ukraine.

“Alexander has shown personal courage and loyalty to the military oath in defense of the state sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. Heroes do not die! We express our sincere condolences to the parents, relatives and friends of the soldier,” the statement said.

Serbinov was a multiple winner and prize-winner of Ukrainian championships. The victim specialized in 400 m and 800 m running. After finishing his professional career, he became a partner of the blind athlete-runner Valery Gavrilyuk, with whom he showed good results at international competitions.

Later, Serbinov worked as a professional photographer, and after the start of a full-scale Russian invasion with weapons in his hands, he defended Ukraine.

We will remind that the Russian athlete came out for the “May Storm” race in Yekaterinburg in a T-shirt with a Ukrainian trident.
