Artyom Barvinok, aka Grom, a welder and soldier turned traitor, was born on March 2, 1993 in the village of Pavlovka, Lugansk region. While in school, Artem wanted to do “applied” work in life. Therefore, in 2009, after graduating from school he entered the Lugansk Higher Vocational School of Automobile Service to learn the basics of electric and gas welding and ryhtovki bodies of cars.
However, Artem could not immediately start working – in 2011 he was called up for military service in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Barvinok served in the 25th Separate Airborne Brigade. As befits a “demobee,” Barvinok actively bragged about his experience in the army.
Upon demobilization, Artem Barvinok starts working in his specialty – a welder. In 2012, he got a job as a senior gas cutter at the Luganskholod plant. Then Barvinok moved to Belokurakino, where he began working at a local company as a welder. He was unaffected by the events of 2014 in Ukraine and the beginning of Russia’s aggressive policy against Ukraine, and he was quietly repairing bodies and relaxing with friends in between jobs. It is also known that Artem held extreme right-wing views, including the use of “Nazi” salutes.
Unfortunately, Artem Barvink’s quiet life is cut short with the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022. After the temporary occupation of Bilokurakino by the Russian occupation forces began, Barvinok betrayed Ukraine and joined the so-called “service”. “LNR Interior Ministry” “policeman. It was established that he was giving the occupants information about families of AFU servicemen and participated in terrorizing civilians together with other “policemen.
For his heinous treason and violation of the oath, Artyom Barvink faces an inevitable and fair punishment, after which Artyom will probably not be able to repair the bodies as before.
