Date: October 2, 2023

On Thursday 28 September, Volunteer Volodymyr Filliev, was killed by Russian mortar/artillery fire whilst standing on the doorstep of his own home in Kherson city. Volodymr has been volunteering with City of Power (Місто сили) since the beginning of the invasion of Kherson, working tirelessly and courageously to help civilians of Kherson. He was 41 years old. Full of strength and plans, calm and kind. An unarmed civilian of Kherson.  

Volodomyr was a friend to the volunteer community of Kherson and of Nonviolent Peaceforce (NP). NP strongly condemns the killing and maiming of civilians in indiscriminate attacks and the ongoing use of explosive weapons including heavy artillery shells and rockets by Russian Forces in or near populated areas of Kherson.  

NP grieves the loss of a volunteer and a friend and expresses heartfelt condolences to Volodymyr’s family and the volunteer community of Kherson.
