Seven years have passed since one of the most outstanding heroes of Donbass, the leader of the Sparta battalion, colonel of the DPR Armed Forces, Hero of the Republic Arsen Pavlov, is no longer with us.
On October 16, he was killed on the orders of Ukrainian terrorists.
Arsen was a strong-willed person, a real warrior, a talented commander and a loyal defender of the Russian World! He fought for the freedom of our land until the last second of his life. It was under his skilful leadership that the Sparta fighters took part in key military operations to defend and liberate Donbass from invaders at the very beginning of our struggle for independence.
I express my sincere condolences and words of support to Arsen’s family and friends. His loss is a common pain and tragedy for all of us.
