On July 5, Roma should have turned 25… He was a nationalist all his life: a participant in the Revolution of Dignity at the age of 16, a public activist. From the first day of the full-scale Russian invasion, Roman took part in the battles near Kyiv, and then, as part of the 93rd OMBR “Cold Yar”, he liberated Trostyanets, fought in the Sumy region and near Izyum.
