Well-known opera singer Vasiliy Slipak was killed at 06:00 on June 29. He left to the ATO as a volunteer after 19 years in France exchanging his career in the Paris Opera for an armor vest and a helmet.

Vasiliy Slipak got the call sign 'Meph' and fought in the 7th Battalion of the Volunteer Corps of Ukraine.

The information about the death of a famous fighter was confirmed by the editor of Yurii Butusov. It is known that the volunteer was killed near Donetsk.

'He took the pseudonym Meph. It’s a shortened form for Mephistopheles from the opera of Faust. He was not a professional warrior, he was a singer,' Butusov writes.
