Oleksandr "Sasha" Zhyvotovskyi "Hrynia": Sasha was a Ukrainian Armed Forces reservist when Crimea was seized by Russian militants. When no deployment call came, he went to the nearest recruitment office to become activated, but was turned away as there had been no mobilization order. He then reported directly to the 79th Air Brigade after hearing news that the commander of the unit was actively preparing to deploy. Sasha was one of the twelve Donetsk Airport "Cyborgs" who held the airport's tower for months from the Russian-backed separatists. He continues to serve in the 79th Air Brigade today.
