Soldier Alexander Voloboy, also known as Mariman, tragically passed away on July 4, 2023, while performing a combat mission near the village of Hryhorivka in Donetsk Oblast. Exactly one month later, on August 4, the defender would have turned 48 years old.

Alexander Vasyliovych was born in the village of Oleksandrivka, Kirovohrad Oblast. He graduated from the Onykiivka Vocational-Technical School No. 38. He then worked as a tractor driver. From 1993 to 1995, he served in the military. Afterwards, he worked as a heater, repairing equipment at the “Romashka” preschool institution in the town of Mala Vyska, where he settled. Since 2008, he had been an employee of the Novokostyantynivska Mine. Initially, he worked as a guard in the departmental security of the state-owned enterprise “Directorate,” then he mastered the profession of a miner. After receiving education at the Kryvyi Rih Construction Lyceum, he worked as a shift electrician repairing equipment in the mine’s area from April 2009.

On December 24, 2022, Alexander joined the ranks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. He served in the 56th Separate Motorized Infantry Brigade as a driver-radio operator. He fought in Zaporizhzhia and Donetsk Oblasts.

“A man with a capital letter, our defender and Hero. I am proud of my husband. He gave everything for us, for you, for a free Ukraine, for peace and tranquility. He gave his life, still having so many plans and unrealized dreams,” noted the deceased’s wife, Lyudmila.

The defender was laid to rest at the central cemetery of the town of Mala Vyska, Kirovohrad Oblast.

At home, Alexander’s mother, wife, and three children awaited him.
