In Memory of the Defenders of Our Homeland

In these difficult days, our whole nation is going through one of the most tragic events in its recent history. We have suffered irreversible human, territorial, emotional and cultural losses. Many of the bright people we have known are now eternally gone, having sacrificed their lives for the salvation of our homeland. We are deeply saddened to announce that we have fallen servicemen among Galaxy Group’s community, who honorably gave their lives in line of duty for the greater good of their country. It is incredibly difficult to find words of consolation at this moment but we bow before them and honor their memory. We want to once again remember the heroics of our colleagues, the short yet self-sacrificing and heroic path that they took.

Eternal glory to our heroes, you will never truly vanish from our hearts…
