He had previously been buried in the city of Dnipro, and his family wanted to rebury him in his home village. The burial was organised by the deceased soldier's family, namely his son and wife. The reburied man’s son was also a serviceman. The son, his wife and his mother were in the cafe and were killed in the missile strike."
