Yuriy Prilipko Wiki – Biography

Yuriy Prilipko, a ‘hero’ mayor of the Gostomel village, northwest of the capital Kyiv, supported his community by handing out bread and medicine to vulnerable civilians and has been shot dead.

A Ukrainian actor Pasha Lee and the local mayor both died fighting for their country as Russian forces’ brutal attacks continued on day twelve.


He was 61 years old.

Gostomel Village Mayor Killed in Russian Shelling

On social media, mayor Prilipko was called a ‘hero’ in a tribute post by Gostomel’s village council.

It read: ‘He never refused help to anyone. No one forced him to go under the bullets of the occupiers.

‘He could, like hundreds of others, sit in the cellar.

‘And he made his choice. He died for the community, he died for Gostomel, he died as a hero.’

It comes as the invasion of Ukraine enters its twelfth day as cities were hit by fresh bombardments, with the war-torn country’s president Volodymyr Zelensky vowing that ‘God will not forgive’ and Ukraine ‘will not forget’ the slaughter of civilians by Russian, saying a ‘day of judgement’ is coming for them.

Zelensky, in a late-night address to his countrymen on the Orthodox Christian holiday of ‘Forgiveness Sunday,’ recalled how a family of four were among eight civilians killed by Russian mortars while trying to flee the city of Irpin – near Kyiv – earlier in the day. ‘We will not forgive. We will not forget,’ he told listeners.

‘We cannot forgive the hundreds upon hundreds of victims. Nor the thousands upon thousands who have suffered,’ he added. ‘God will not forgive. Not today. Not tomorrow. Never.’
