One more our Hero – native resident of Dubno, Napriienko Dmytro Vitaliiovych, known under the callsign “Aramis” is killed. 24-year-old Dmytro went to war of his own free will. He fought heroically. The magazine “Mirror Plus” wrote about his exploits more than once. The last Dmytro’s interview came out on October, 22 in a local newspaper and was called “Snipers hunt for the heroes”. At that time he was interviewed together with Zvirobii. Many readers remember their common photo on the first page of the newspaper.

Dmytro growed a luxurious Cossack mustache. Handsome man. Hero. Very sincere and bright man. And now he is gone. He died the brave death in the prime of life. Ukrainian primrose dies. Sad news was reported by volunteers who went to the ATO zone on Sunday morning. They had to return, but when they found out about the death of their compatriot they remained there in order to bring the body of the Hero to his native Dubno. The last time we talked to Dima on Satuday. The circumstances of the defender’s death are yet unknown. We also do not know when the Hero will be brought to his hometown. Keep track of information in a social networks. Rest  in peace, Brother. Our prayers and hearts are with You. Heartfelt condolences to relatives and friends. Eternal memory to the Hero!

It was gloomy day today

Three month already, since your death

Hero’s heart is resting

March meets us with sadness…

Your eyes will not shine bright

With happiness surrounded flash of death

Hero’s heart stopped at the verge of the night

But how I want to hear your voice and your laugh…

Spring is waiting for you

But you died for us

Hero’s heart does not die!

It sprouts in our soul up!

On December, 1, 2015 Napriienko Dmytro died under tragic circumstances near Krasnohorivka (Mar’inskyi district, Donetsk region).  Buried in the Mlyniv cemetery in Dubno.

Junior sergeant Dmytro Napriienko studied at Dubno Pedagogical College and then he continued his studying at Regional Humanitarian and Pedagogical Academy of Taras Shevchenko in Kremenets at the Faculty of Humanities. In December, 2014 he went to the front line of his own free will.

On February 21, 2016 volunteer Dmytro Napriienko would have been 25 years old.

Unfortunately, a strict fate measured him short life. Heroes do not die. They went to the Heaven in the prime of their lives to be the lights for those who remains on Earth. The path of a warrior is the path to immortality. Now he is a warrior of one of the Heavenly Hundreds. Irrepressible romantic, good-natured, simple, sincere, trusting guy. The true Ukrainian patriot, who laid his soul and body for the will of Ukraine. The enemies after his death, fluttering with gall malice, wrote in their gangster website “liquidated ….”. If the enemies wrote such words about the man, then he lived his life heroically and right. And he lived not in vain. He died for us. We have an eternal debt in front of him and thousands of other heroes who stopped the horde and kept the Ukrainian Sky in their bloody hands. Let’s remember him – a young, smiling, with a noble look of clear eyes. We pray for the soul of Dmytro, who sacrificed himself for Ukraine.
