"Mykolaiv is a Hero City. Every day we lose our residents, our soldiers. And today our city lost its Hero. Hero of Ukraine, CEO Nibulon, Oleksiy Vdaturskyi, and his wife Raisa  Vadaturska were tragically killed as a result of an overnight shelling of the city," noted Kim.

He emphasized that Oleksiy Vadaturskyi "did a lot for the Mykolaiv region and Ukraine."

The businessman's contribution to the development of the agricultural and shipbuilding industry and regional development is "invaluable," Kim added.

"With respect and deepest regret… Rest in peace," the official wrote.
