"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."
