It couldn’t be the other way – he was absolutely no fan of public life. The reasons were his occupation: Colonel Shapoval was one of the best officers of our country, the head of the SF department of the Intelligence Head office of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

He took part in the most complicated tasks on the battlefield, which were given to soldiers of SF. He was one of the “cyborgs” defending Donetsk airport. He and his department have eradicated the head of the special unit “Vympel” of FSS RF, which was organizing terroristic acts on Ukrainian territory, successful performance of a whole bunch of military tasks.
