Artem Pavlushchenko, a participant in city and regional competitions in Volgograd, a member of the Russian youth karate team, who was a graduate of the Moscow Combined Arms Command School, was killed by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The 26-year-old occupier was a lieutenant of the Storm-Z unit, which was stationed on the border of Donetsk Oblast.
