Recall that the clip is preceded by a brief interview with the visitors of the nightclub, which took place at a school in Severodvinsk. After the news of Stepanov’s death, reports appeared that he was the hero of the “Ice is Melting” video. The fighter’s aunt told reporters that her nephew had never visited Severodvinsk and that at the time of filming from the nightclub he was eight years old. Therefore, the identity of the young man who appears in the video is unknown.
Denis Stepanov served as an assistant grenade launcher of a rifle squad in the Northern Military District. On social networks, Komi residents express their condolences to the fighter’s loved ones.
