"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 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.
