The Occupiers Shot Unarmed Children’s Boxing Coach

In Irpin found the body of a famous boxing coach and multiple world champion Oleksii Dzhunkovskyy

Ukrainian military efforts managed to liberate one of the cities near Kyiv — Irpen. The occupiers destroyed the city with tanks and missiles for almost a month. This city has already entered history as a place from which it was necessary to save everyone because the Russian occupiers did not know pity.

But the liberation of the city brought no joy. The invaders killed many people. Also, become aware of the tragic death of a four-time world boxing champion among servicemen, Oleksii Dzhunkovskyy. At the time of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the athlete was no longer related to the army. He trained children. Among his successful wards:

  • Oleh Lahuta European champion among schoolchildren;
  • Vladyslav Marchuk silver medalist of the European Championship among schoolchildren.

Oleksii was found in the gym where he was training before the war. Note that athletes are trained in self-control and always try to avoid quarrels. Also, the man did not have a gun. But the coach was shot by occupants.

"According to acquaintances, Oleksii Dzhunkovskyy died in a boxing hall during communication with the Russian military. The coach was shot on the spot," says the department of youth and sports of the Kyiv regional state administration.

No one knows how many more such merciless murders are coming. But every day, the Russian military is getting angrier and more sophisticated.
