Oleksandr was always a strange presence to be around, never one to let his guard down and always having had a keen eye, he was spotted at a shooting range in Sumy where he was recruited as an artillery target spotter at the age of 18, after serving in several actions in eastern Ukraine, he was promoted to rank of officer of the recon core in his division. It was while on an excursion in Chernarus where he was training local soldiers that his rifle misfired, incapacitating him instantly, it was while he was here that he met his wife, a local tour piolet by the name of Diana, after several months, he convinced her to move back to Ukraine with him. Upon his return, however, he was greeted by the military and called into active service in militarizing the border along the black sea. After being stationed on the border his radio intercepted a Russian broadcast stating that the immediate area be evacuated, he fled and told his wife to leave with him in the morning, taking flight to Cyprus. A sudden electrical cut-off in flight caused the plane to descend above Chernarus, landing abruptly along an eastern beach in a crash, blacking out. Upon awaking he found himself with a large waist bandage and a note from his wife, saying she had gone to find help… And thus the story began.
