Note : the internationalist fighter and communist Alexis Castillo has fallen in combat in Donetsk on the 28 th of October . He went there in 2014 to defend the civilian population of Donbass. He spent part of his youth in Spain (Zaragoza). Alexis was defending a liberated position in the northwest of Donetsk airport, where heavy fighting took place these days. He and three other deceased companions were the object of an artillery attack that hit them squarely. He leaves behind his wife, Katia, and his 6-year-old son, Miguel. The Spanish state must open an investigation about his assassination and judge the culprits.
Thank you for your commitment against ukronazis and solidarity, you are eternal. Here the message from the Central Committee of the Communiste Party of the Donetsk People ‘s republic :
An internationalist warrior from Colombia, a member of the Communist Party of the Donetsk People’s Republic (KPDPR), a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Youth of the DPR, Alexis Castillo (callsign Alfonso), died under shelling from shrapnel wounds. He fought off the offensive of the Ukrainian Nazis on the village of Peski.
Alexis Castillo was born in Colombia and lived in Spain for a long time. Eight years ago, he came to defend the inhabitants of Donbass from Ukrainian Nazism.
Our deceased comrade was a convinced communist, a decent and modest man. Until the end of his life, he remained faithful to his duty as an internationalist warrior.
In Donetsk, Alexis is survived by his wife and son. We extend our condolences to his family and friends.
