A UKRAINIAN ballet star has been killed on a fight mission after signing as much as combat towards the Russian invasion.
Rosyslav Yanchyshen, 31, died in a mortar assault.
His demise was known as an “unspeakable loss” by the nation’s tradition ministry.
The Odesa Opera soloist signed up as a volunteer with Ukraine’s territorial defence within the first days of the conflict.
Odesa Opera stated: “The artist’s ballet footwear had been changed by military boots, and the music by the sounds of mortar fireplace.”
He had danced with the corporate for ten years.
Its boss, Harry Sevoyan, added: “He was a vivid, proficient, respectable, clever man.”
Certainly one of his most hanging roles was that of a soldier dying within the ballet Trymai.
Mr Sevoyan stated: “As destiny would have it, this position turned out to be prophetic.”
Ukraine’s tradition ministry stated: “From the start of the full-scale invasion, he needed to defend his nation from the invader, however the dancer was not accepted into the Armed Forces of Ukraine, so he volunteered and joined the territorial defence.
“On the entrance, he served as a machine gunner.
“Rostyslav died from a mortar assault, a month earlier than his thirty second birthday. That is an unspeakable loss.”
His theatre’s director Yevhen Lavrenchuk stated: “Horrible information. The conflict has killed Rostyslav Yanchyshen, a soloist with the Odesa Opera Ballet.
“An everlasting smile, a vivid look – that is how your colleagues will bear in mind you…”
