According to the brother of the deceased soldier, Anton, Makar led the newly recruited soldiers into battle personally, and when they retreated, they carried the wounded man, from whom Erofeev did not leave until the last, despite the shelling. The former hockey player was killed by a mortar shell.

"Makar always went into battle, even when his commanders forbade him to do so. Makar could not see the death of his subordinates on the screen of "streams" and hear them being wounded on the radio, he always went into battle with them. He was loved by everyone he knew. There are no words to describe the tragedy of your death, brother. But as long as I live, I will avenge you," Anton wrote.
