To Defenders of Freedom

21-year-old lieutenant Vitaliy Sapilo neutralized 30 units of enemy equipment. He died from an air strike.

Vitaliy was a young football player and member of the “Karpaty” children’s football club. His coach, Andriy Digdalovich, was a hero from the Heavenly Hundred, who died from a sniper bullet during the Revolution of Dignity in 2014. Vitaliy was even called on to play for the Shakhtar Donetsk club, but he decided to join the ground forces instead. He was a tank platoon commander and posthumously received the title of Hero of Ukraine.

Eternal glory to the defender of Ukraine.
