“We were vaccinated with the whole family, he chose not to be vaccinated. We tried to talk to him. He was firm in his belief that in a democratic country everyone has the opportunity to choose their own path. And this is the path he chose,” interview with the TV channel activist’s sister. She added that the activist died “the worst death imaginable, alone, without a family, although he was a family man, without his children, mother, brothers, and sisters, alone, excuse me, like a dog.”
