The tragedy struck Perbyinis while he had been away from home to take care of his ill mother in easter Ukraine, his wife and children were killed and their dead bodies were lying on the payment.
“That was the day when already there was no water, electricity, gas, and we discussed — I spoke to her at 10 p.m., even though at that point there was no connectivity either. But I managed to get through and had a discussion about potential evacuation. At the last moment, however, the convoy she was planning to travel with was shelled at and fired at. And then she came on foot to the bridge, trying to make an escape on foot.
I noticed that there was unusual geolocation between Kyiv and their pin. And then 20 minutes later, her phone moved to another location, to a hospital in Kyiv. And I suspected something was wrong. And then I saw a photo on Twitter, and I recognized my children. I recognized their things and their clothes. And I called my friends to say that the children are dead. Their bodies are lying on the pavement.
She was a very cheerful person, she was the financial director of a large American company,” he continued. “We spent lots of time together as a family. We loved bicycles, in winter we went skiing, and she loved very much planting flowers at her dacha, countryside cottage.
Serhiy, as a parent, any person around the world can’t imagine your unbearable loss, above all losing your children. I was driving for three days and I broke in there and managed to bury everyone, I even managed to take away a pet dog.” he answered the anchor.
