"At first, he just went to strategic exercises. It was according to plan. After graduation, they were supposed to go home, but they were sent to Ukraine. Even during the exercises, there was no daily communication. And from Ukraine, he was able to call his wife only twice. We corresponded several times. On the morning of March 20, Dima talked to his wife and cousin. The last time he was online was at 3 o'clock. On the same day, my brother was killed."

On the eve of Heroes of the Fatherland Day, Lyceum 121 in Kazan honored the memory of special operation participant Dmitry Dormidontov. A memorial plaque appeared in the educational institution in memory of the hero.
Dmitry is the commander of a rocket artillery battalion, but for Olga Dormidontova he is, first of all, a loving husband and father, who did not like to talk about his service at home.
“He is a simple and inconspicuous guy, but he had a very strong character. He had fortitude, as well as perseverance, assertiveness, courage and bravery,” the widow shared.
Dmitry studied at Lyceum 121 for only 5 years, after which he entered the Suvorov School. Despite this, the lyceum teachers keep the memory of the graduate to this day.
