Another Bulgarian died in the fight to free the Kherson region from the Russian occupation of the Bolgrad municipality in Ukraine. The Bolgrad regional state government posted a report on this on its website.
The victim’s name was Konstantin Karagyoz. He was born in 1993 in the Bulgarian village of Zaliznicnoe, also known as Bulgariyka (the old name).In 2020, Karagyoz was drawn into the Ukrainian armed forces(VSU) ranks under a contract in the military’s finest unit of the Marine corps. He died an honourable death while fighting in Kherson to liberate it from Russian occupation.
The funeral for the fallen soldier will be held on October 26, according to a report from the local government (Today). The Bulgarian Hero will be given a guard of honour for the service he rendered in the Kherson region and for carrying out his job until the very end.
The administration of Bolgrad wrote, “Our sincere condolences to his wife and family for this unbearable loss. We bow down to our head warrior protector, who fought bravely on the battlefield—a true hero who prioritized his duty till his last breath. Heroes don’t die! he will always be in our hearts for his sacrifice. Eternal memory and glory to the Hero”.
One of the areas that Russia annexed was Kherson. The port city, which was taken early in the invasion of Ukraine eight months ago and had a pre-war population of roughly 280,000, is the largest metropolitan centre that Russia still controls. To retake Kherson, Ukraine has already begun a quick counteroffensive.
Kherson is arguably one of the four provinces that Russian President Vladimir Putin seized as having the most significant strategic significance. The massive river that divides Ukraine, the Dnipro, and the only land access point to the Crimean peninsula, which Russia annexed in 2014, are both under its authority. One of Russia’s significant failures in the fight would be a loss in Kherson.
