Sasha’s father died on March 6, 2015. He and his brother went off to join the militia almost at the very beginning. “Off to war…”. Who back then knew what “war” was? Sasha’s uncle had two serious injuries and a wound. He’s practically disabled and can’t either serve or find work.
Sasha lives with his grandmother in Lugansk. The boy’s mother left him with his father when he was very little. It’s a rare case, but not totally unheard of.

Aleksandr the elder was not quite 40 when he died.

Aleksandr received a posthumous decoration–Sasha the younger was presented with the medal.

Sasha lives with his grandmother and uncle. They live on Larissa’s pension, or 2800 rubles. No other income.
Sasha is an A student, works hard, and is proud of his father.
He’s 9. He was 7 when his father died.
The whole family was shattered. Lost jobs, no more vacation trips…
One could of course say it’s their own fault.
Perhaps it is. We are all guilty of something, aren’t we?
But as far as I am concerned, people like Aleksandr deserve only respect.
He went to defend that which he valued. He went to fight for an idea. He believed in it. He did not sit on his hands.
Those who are posting trash in the comments under such posts, they not even worthy of my pity.
Only of revulsion.
One may disagree with Aleksandr’s stance, but not disrespect it.
He was a real man, a genuine Human Being.

Our humanitarian aid. Thanks to all for participation!
The family is struggling. Larisa lost one of her sons, the other is disabled.
