A monument to the Hero of Ukraine Oleksandr Matsievskyi was unveiled in Nizhyn, Chernihiv region. In early March 2023, a video appeared showing him being shot by the Russian occupiers after saying "Glory to Ukraine!"

Matsievsky's monument became the centerpiece of a memorial in honor of the defenders who died in the Russian-Ukrainian war. An OBOZ.UA correspondent reported this from the scene.

The 2.2-meter-high sculpture is made of bronze. It is also planned to create a memorial complex in Nizhyn. It will be built on a round red granite with a diameter of 16 meters, and the black granite segments of the Cossack cross will bear the names of the fallen Heroes.

During the unveiling of the monument, a comrade-in-arms of the fallen soldier said that Oleksandr Matsiievskyi performed a special act, saying "Glory to Ukraine!" to the enemy in the eyes.
