  • Minskaya In Memoriam

    To All WAB Members,

    As many of you have noted, Minskaya has been absent from the board for the month or so. She communicated privately to the Staff that she was traveling home to Ukraine and that her ultimate destination was "east of the Dnieper River".

    It is with great sadness that we must now report the apparent death of Minskaya.

    While the message informing us of this tragic news came from her sister and appears to be genuine, we have been unable to establish the exact circumstances of her death. Her sister merely informed us that she "did not suffer", and in reply to our return message asking for more details, said only that she died in the eastern conflict zone "precisely where she wanted to be." The Staff passed along the deepest condolences of the WAB to her family and expressed our immense respect for Minskaya.

    Her sister further stated that Minnie had intended to post a Ukrainian music video to the WAB at the next opportunity. Her sister was able to access her WAB account and that post can now be found here.

    I want to stress again that we have no way of authenticating this information nor obtaining further details. At this time we can only mourn the passing of a wonderful woman and pray that the conflict in Ukraine comes to a peace conclusion.

        God love her and hold her close. I miss her so much already. The only solace is knowing she now lies at peace beneath blue Ukrainian skies.

        This has been the most painful news of a soul uniquely capable of giving so much. She loved this board and its members tremendously. We've suffered a grievous loss.

        Farewell, Minnie.

            Speechless and in shock.

            Contacted Ben to see if he has some sort of info.

            If this is true, I am really hopeful she found her inner peace and that her ultimate sacrifice was worth it.

                  Losing Shamus and Whiskie was damn hard...but THIS!

                  So young and vital.

                  However, I am sure that duty called and her conscience answered.

                  Where do we get such men....and women?

                  God bless you and may you be in His hand forever.

                    I haven't heard anything from her, we weren't really in touch.

                        Guys,

                        If you have any kind of communication with her family or friends and if there is something at all we can do, please let me know.

                          The loss to her family and her country are far greater than ours. But we're losers too whenever a member passes away. I'll miss her sometimes feisty comments and her insights on Israeli operations and other military topics.

                          I suspect she died in the conflict in Ukraine. How and in what capacity, we may never know. She was too vibrant to pass away of natural causes. I hope her sister is right that she "felt no pain" and that she was where she wanted to be. It appears she had the courage of her convictions. There is no higher virtue.

                            Dok, I'm sure the family would appreciate knowing that. You should know that at the moment it appears the family plans no further communication with us, but whatever we learn, we will share with everyone.

                              Totally shocked at this news. She was a staunch Wabber and we will certainly miss her. Farewell Minnie RIP
