Exactly a week ago, on May 5, Andrii, a Ukrainian border guard fighting at the Azovstal factory in Mariupol, married Valeriia Karpylenko, a comrade-in-arms.

Aluminum rings were exchanged in the besieged factory bunkers since the eighth day of the war, a symbol of the love that united them, Ukrainian armed forces revealed on Twitter on Thursday.

The posting tells of Andrew’s death, just three days after the wedding. The Ukrainian government also said with heartbreaking emojis that Valeriia promised her husband to flee Azovstal with her life. And from there, live for it.
