Ukrainian actor Pasha Lee dies in combat at the age of 33 in the midst of the Russia-Ukraine war


Ukrainian actor Pasha Lee has been killed in combat during a Russian bombardment in Irpin, a city west of Kiev. The Odessa International Film Festival has been in charge of announcing the tragedy through Facebook: “On March 6, as a result of the bombing of the Russian occupiers in the Ukrainian city of Irpin, the famous Ukrainian actor Pasha Lee has been murdered. He was 33 years old.” In addition, at the end of the statement, it includes a link for us to sign the petition to “continue boycotting Russian cinema.”

Lee had enlisted in the Ukrainian armed forces with the aim of protecting his native country against the Russian invasion. A day before his death, he shared a hopeful post on his Instagram account: “In the last 48 hours there is a chance to sit down and shed light on how we are being bombed, and we smile, because we will cope and everything will be UKRAINE. It’s our job!!!”
