Mykola "Biliy" Zabchuk is a fan of the football club "Karpaty" (Lviv).
Mykola Mykolayovych Zabchuk was born on October 25, 1996 in the city of Lviv. Studied at lyceum No. 21 in his native city, graduated from Lviv Polytechnic University. An active position in life since his school years led the young man to the "Karpat" fan movement, which he supported at home and away matches. He started playing sports from a young age, when he started attending the gymnastics section at the age of five. Later, aikido, boxing and kickboxing will come into his life. He represented the "Triumph" sports club in kickboxing competitions. It is in this sport that Mykola will become the champion of the Lviv region, a finalist of the Ukrainian championship and a candidate for master of sports. He had high results and awards in barbell competitions, which he did with coach Pavel Zink.
After studying at the Lviv Polytechnic, Mykola worked as an engineer of the "Archery Stand of the Lviv School of Higher Sports Mastery". He was interested in information technologies, and therefore began to learn the JavaScrip programming language. After the war, he wanted to work in the field of IT. Veronika, sister of "White", recalls that he cared a lot about other people and at the same time did not seek extra attention, avoiding insincerity. I had real friends (including those from the sports community), who today are concerned about the pain of their families and support their loved ones.
From the first days of the war, Mykola and his friends joined the ranks of the volunteer battalion, joining the Lviv 125th Territorial Defense Brigade. He soon took a military oath and, together with his comrades, planned to defend Ukraine until victory itself. Already in the ranks of the ZSU, Mykola proposed to his bride Oleksandra, with whom they began to plan a wedding and a future together.
But on July 22, 2022, a report was received about enemy shelling of Kramatorsk (Donetsk region), as a result of which three Ukrainian soldiers were killed. Mykola Zabchuk gave his life full of hopes and plans for the future for the future of Ukraine. The dreams of a 25-year-old man from Lviv about a happy family and traveling the world will remain unfulfilled. Courageously accepting the challenges of fate in life and sports, he also accepted this one without retreating in the face of the enemy.
