Ukraine : trade unionist killed in war

Accueil > International (Engl) > Europe > Ukraine : trade unionist killed in war

Unfortunately, the war brought another tragic news. On 27 June this year in the battles of the Kharkiv region, defending the homeland in the ranks of the armed forces, showing resilience and courage, loyalty to the military oath, Anatoly Korolyov was killed.

Anatoly Korolev, born in 1977, worked as a gas worker at the repair and mechanical workshop No. 1 LLC Livarno-mechanicnij, a member of the PMGU (Metallurgical and Mining Workers’ Union of Ukraine) since 2018. He had been incorporated during a mobilisation on 25 February this year.

According to the chairwoman of the PMGU neighbourhood committee Lyudmila Kolodonos, for the trade union team this is a very big loss : "In the company where he worked for 21 years, he was an open, friendly and cheerful person. When one of his friends or colleagues needed help, Anatoly was there. In a word, a positive man in many ways ! I can’t believe he won’t be with us anymore...
The trade unionist was married and had two children.

The trade union organisation PMGU of ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih presents its sincere condolences to the family and friends of the hero, and the family has received material assistance.

The memory of Anatoly Korolyova, as well as other defenders of Ukraine who gave their lives for her, will be forever preserved in our hearts !
Eternal memory to the defenders of Ukraine !
