The eldest son Kirill asked his father very much to stay, let the young officers show themselves now. He said, they say, you have served your time, won back in the Caucasus, maybe you shouldn't go anymore? His father's last words were: "Don't be afraid, son, I won't disgrace you."
In late April - early May, heavy positional battles took place in the area of the village of Huliaipole. One of them was the last for Dmitry Savchenko.
