Glory to Ukraine!: Brothers-in-arms reveal name of killed soldier

As per the information available at the moment, the soldier killed by the occupiers for shouting "Glory to Ukraine!" was Tymofii Shadura, a military serviceman from the 30th Mechanised Brigade.

Source: the press service of the brigade on social media, General Staff, representative of the 30th Mechanised Brigade in an interview with Ukrainska Pravda

Quote: "Yesterday, a video of Russian occupiers executing a soldier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine after he said ‘Glory to Ukraine!’ was posted on social media and news outlets.


As per the information available, it was Tymofii Shadura from the 30th Mechanised Brigade."

Details: It is noted that Tymofii Shadura was considered to be a missing person since 3 February 2023, after combat actions near the city of Bakhmut. 

At the moment, the body of the Ukrainian defender is on the temporarily occupied territories. 


The brigade has pointed out that the final identification will be made after the body is returned and all examinations are done.

Quote from the General Staff: "The shooting of an unarmed prisoner is a cynical and brazen disregard of the norms of international humanitarian law and the customs of war. This is what vile murderers do, not warriors. The Russian occupiers have once again clarified that their main goal in Ukraine is the cruel extermination of Ukrainians.

Not a single death of our warriors will go unpunished. But we will do it in a legal and fair way – on the battlefield, in court or in an international tribunal.

With a cool head, in accordance with the customs of war and with honour, we will surely take revenge for everyone! Eternal memory and Glory to the Hero!"

Update: In an interview with Ukrainian Pravda, the 30th Mechanised Brigade reported that Tymofii Shadura, born in 1982, was mobilised in December 2022.

According to the data provided by the serviceman himself, when he joined the brigade, he had combat experience and previously served in the 92nd brigade [but when was not stated – ed.].

Shadura came from and lived in the village of Mala Derevychka, Lubar district, Zhytomyr Oblast. The hero's mother and two of his brothers live there.

Shadura himself, in the data he provided for the 30th Mechanised Brigade, indicated that he was not married.
