World champion in kick-boxing Nikolay Leonov was among supporters of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic who died in the fight for the Donetsk airport on 26 May, co-chairman of the People's Front of Donbass Vladimir Rogov told RIA Novosti.
Leonov's body was identified on Friday and taken to his native city of Dnepropetrovsk.
Nikolay Leonov, aged 31, won the World Cup in full contact karate in Odessa in 2005. In 2007 he became the IAKSA and WTKA world champion in kick-boxing in Marina di Carrara, Italy. He achieved the norm of world-class athlete and worked as a training manager. Leonov was also a member of the Cossack community and a Bible reader in church, he composed music in the Orthodox rap style.
All in all, over 50 protesters were killed at the Donetsk airport on 26 May, among them 33 Russians whose bodies have already been sent home. About 15 bodies still remain at the airport because snipers do not allow to collect them.
What is/was the Kamaz truck crash?
Europe really needs to learn to deal with their own problems.
Kamaz is the largest truck factory in Russia.
Go put up another shirtless Putin poster on your wall in your mom's basement.
Newsflash: kickboxing isn't warfighting. Turns out he was not the tough guy he thought he was.
50 protesters killed by the forces of evil, led by Adolf Hitler reincarnated. Of those 50, 33 Russian tourists who just happened to be catching a plane after showing solidarity with their Russian brethren in the People's Republic of Donetsk. The plane arrived just in time to collect their bodies...
Yes. According to NTV, he was one of the victims of the Kamaz crash.
“he was “executed” because he died fighting treasonously”
So, on your planet, what do they call killing the wounded at short range, by a shot to the head?
Life is rough for Russian puppets in countries attempting to remain out of Russia’s control.
I would call it fighting Russians in the style of the Russians.
It’s a knockout!
If looks could they probably will in Games with Frontiers, War without tears.
“Life is rough for Russian puppets in countries attempting to remain out of Russias control.
You didn’t actually read the article, did you. He was a Ukrainian, from Dnepropetrovsk. Per the NTV article, he joined the rebellion after the Odessa Massacre.
“...he composed music in the Orthodox rap style...”
This is a style now?!?
“I would call it fighting Russians in the style of the Russians.”
Well, civilized people would call it a War Crime, but that really depends on who the eventual victor is, doesn’t it?
I said Russian puppet, not Russian. You did not really read my post did you?
Knife to a gun fight??
I would call it a war crime as well. However, in a place that has been fought over and bled like Ukraine, where people have been disappeared, starved, slaughtered, tortured and massacred for the last 100 years you will see men fight fire with fire.
If you are seriously positing that the Russians are the good guys here then you are a rank propagandist. Period. Bottom line is there are not many good guys there and those vying for power on both sides surely are not.
The whole of that area of the world is mentally ill from the last 100 years of uncivilized behavior. It is none of our concern. Let them wallow in their barbarity.
“...he composed music in the Orthodox rap style...
This is a style now?!?”
Never heard of it, either, but it appears to be some kind of a “thing” over there, after a little googling.
Definitely not my thing...
Glad your are such a Putinista
