The Donetsk People's Republic is mourning the death of Olga Kachura (Korsa), Colonel, commander of a rocket artillery battalion, who died today in Gorlovka. Journalist Olga Zhukova became one of the few who met with Korsa at home.
“I was struck by how Olga instantly passed from the usual incarnation of a warrior woman to a hospitable hostess, and in this image she was completely unusual and unrecognizable for me,” Zhukova said.
She remembered drinking coffee and cake with the Corsa, talking about the most ordinary things.
“At the Corsa” there was a masculine firmness and calmness. She answered my questions very frankly, but, probably, with such openness, which is typical only for women. Corsa she didn’t try to impress, she was alien to aplomb, although sometimes she could answer sharply,” the journalist recalled.
Earlier, the head of Gorlovka, Ivan Prikhodko, said that Colonel Olga Kachura died in the line of duty.
