The soldiers' mother, Uliana Horevych, could not accept her sons' choice. "I will be very happy that my children will come home alive and healthy. At least four of them, one of whom was killed, will come home. And those who are hiding, I want to tell them that they are not Ukrainians. They probably don't love their country," the woman said.
