For a moment of life,
For a moment of death,
A poet left already love for home.

For a moment of peace,
For a moment of fight,
A poet left already Lviv for Luhansk.

For a moment of smile,
For a moment of sigh,
A poet left already love for home.

*Ukrainian writer Yuriy Ruf killed in battle at Luhansk on the1st of April, 2022.

During the fighting in the Luhansk region, the famous Ukrainian writer and Lviv resident Yuriy Ruf was killed.
On the first day of the full-scale war between Russia and Ukraine last month, Ruf joined the ranks of the 24th Independent Mechanized Brigade of the Ukrainian Army.

Early March was his first fight. He wrote that his brigade was stationed at Popasna in the Luhansk region, where they crushed the Russian offensive, and the writer's life ended on this day.

Yuriy Ruf was born in Ternopol region in 1980. He began to write poetry at the age of 14, with a collection of deep red lyrics. In 2015, he founded the Ukrainian National Soul Literature Project.

In this war to defend the homeland and the country, there are countless outstanding sons and daughters of Ukraine who bravely sacrificed for the country and the nation. Human history will remember them.

Writers all went to the battlefield and died heroically. Ukraine has the momentum of the whole people's war of resistance! When the war first broke out, the world really underestimated Ukraine's will to resist.



Poem by Yuriy Ruf

When my day is shrouded in night,
The moment the path breaks,
I will follow the water with a withered leaf
Past hundreds of relatives and strangers.
On the day when the heartbeat subsides,
The last rhyme will echo,
I am a quiet unrestrained river
I float like sand from children's hands.
At the time when the flight stops,
A frozen bird fell wearily,
The fire of a candle under a native roof will boil,
And the soul will leave the world with a smoky ghost.
When it is turbulent, it will be thirsty
And cold blood binds cold,
I hope someone calls someone
And he will say: he managed to live life.

"Aware of a poet?
Aware of a poet?
A poet of Cossack broods over the land.
Not noting a bullet.
Not noting a bullet.
You see a poet of Cossack in Borodyanka."
