‘He was a very nice boy, very clever – he recited poetry,’ Anton’s grandmother Tetiana told the BBC.
‘Maybe if he had gone to fight somewhere else, he would have returned her in one piece,’ Tetiana said as tears rolled down her face.
‘When my husband told the Russians, ‘Take me instead,’ they pointed a machine gun at him and said, ‘Go home – or we will take you both’.’
Tetiana, who has only now been able to bury her grandchild, aggiunto: ‘We wanted to bury him separately and with a priest, not just in a mass grave,’ lei dice. ‘I had two daughters, so he was our boy. We only had one boy.’
