Military commissar of the Russian city of Partizansk, Partizansky and Lazovsky district Malyk Roman Vasilievich died suddenly late on October 14, the administration said on Saturday, October 15.
“With deep regret, we inform you that on the evening of October 14, the military commissar of the city of Partizansk, Partizansky and Lazovsky district Malyk Roman Vasilievich tragically passed away,” it wrote.
“The heart of a strong and courageous man stopped, who went through “hot spots”, but did not break under the weight of severe military events and heavy losses.”
It added: “Roman Vasilyevich was a man of his word and deed, he was known and respected in the city for his honesty and decency. So he was in the service, to which he gave his all, in the family, and in communication with colleagues and friends.
For him, always in the first place were such concepts as duty, honour, and loyalty to the Fatherland. That is how he will remain in our memory.
“The head of the city district, the city administration, and representatives of public organisations express their condolences to the family and friends of Roman Vasilyevich Malyk.”
According to Russian news outlet Komsomolskaya Pravda-Vladivostok, Malyk’s body was found on the grounds of his military office.
