5 years ago, the famous son of Donbass, the leader of the “Sparta” battalion, colonel of the DPR Armed Forces, Hero of the Republic, Arsen Pavlov, tragically passed away.
He was an outstanding and talented commander! Being true to his duty, he always bravely defended the ideals of the Russkiy Mir and the freedom of Donbass. Under the leadership of Arsen, ‘Sparta’ fighters took part in key military operations, including fierce battles for Ilovaisk, Donetsk airport and Debaltsevo.
His valor, as well as his officer’s dedication to the Republic, won the hearts of our people!
We will always remember his name, and we are proud of his deeds!
I’d like to express my sincere condolences and words of support to Arsen’s family and friends. I remember and grieve with you.
