Statement by the Information Resistance group
Yury Karin, IR Media Manager:
Dmytro Tymchuk, one of the coordinators and co-founders of the Information Resistance group, Member of Parliament of Ukraine, lieutenant colonel (reserve) and military journalist, tragically died on June 19th.
The Information Resistance group and the team of the Center of Military-Political Studies offer their deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of our friend and colleague.
Dmytro was always a true professional. He will forever live in our memories as a man of firm patriotic beliefs and unshakeable moral principles, which he never compromised. It was thanks to Dmytro’s human and professional qualities which made it possible to gather a team of like-minded people who have been defending Ukraine on the information front since the very start of Russian aggression, to this day. His personal and professional journey was full of significant achievements to the benefit of his homeland. We will remember him as an honest and honorable man, and a true Officer.
We have suffered an irreparable loss, but we have no intention of stopping our work for the benefit of Ukraine.
Dmytro was always brimming with new ideas and creative plans. We will continue the work that was the central purpose of his life.
The Information Resistance group will continue defending the national interests of Ukraine with all our strength. We will realize all of the ideas that our fallen colleague had been involved in.
The Information Resistance group is truly grateful to everyone who expressed their support and condolences to us, and to Dmytro’s family, friends and loved ones in this difficult time.
Speaking to Ukrainian and foreign media, as well as everyone who was moved by this tragedy, we request that you refrain from spreading speculations about the reasons and circumstances of Dmytro’s death. We believe it necessary to wait for the outcome of the official investigation. Please treat this request with understanding and respect.
