Two brothers - Igor and Yevgeny Bonchevi from the village of Nadezhdivka, Artsyz municipality, Bolhrad Raion, died at the front this year. "This is a great tragedy for the family – their two sons, aged 32 and 38, died," wrote the Artsyz municipality on its official website.

Junior Sergeant Yevgeny Bonchev served in the 11th Brigade "Mykhailo Hrushevsky" of the National Guard of Ukraine. The 38-year-old Bulgarian was killed at the front on August 29. Yevgeny enlisted in the ranks of the Ukrainian army in the first days of the war. In 2001, he graduated with honors from the school in his native village, after which he graduated from Izmail State Pedagogical University.

Half a year ago, in February 2023, his younger brother Igor Bonchev was killed at the front, reports BTA.

The Bessarabian Bulgarian died in the Donetsk region during hostilities on February 9. The thirty-two-year-old soldier enlisted in the ranks of the Ukrainian army and went to the front immediately after the start of the war on February 24, 2022.

Igor Bonchev was born into a Bulgarian family in 1991. His birthplace is the village of Nadezhdivka, Artsyz municipality. In 2018, he started working as a physics teacher in the general education school in the village of Vedenka, Sarata Raion, where he lived with his family.
