Ukraine warmly welcomed the release of more than 200 soldiers who defended the Azovstal plant, including the leaders of the Azov battalion, foreign soldiers and the famous “Bird” (Ptaşka) of Mariupol, young Ekaterina.
One of Ekaterina’s friends, however, remained in captivity, without being found on the lists of those released.
His name is Mihailo Ihorovici Rotar (with the variant Rotari), he is 24 years old and bears a Romanian name.
Rotar – with its variant Rotaru – is extremely widespread in Ukraine adjacent to Bucovina and Moldova. The eloquent example is Sofia Rotaru, a famous singer of Romanian origin born across the border. And the family name goes far, to the central part of Ukraine.
This is also where Mihailo comes from, Misutka – as his friends call him. Misutka is one of the sailors captured in Azovstal and became a prisoner of the Russians.
Since August, since she found out that her son is alive, Tania Rotar (Rotari), remarried Zazuliak, his mother, has been fighting for her boy’s release. A post from August 22 has no less than 147,000 shares on Facebook. All for the Ukrainian authorities to consider him for a possible prisoner exchange.

Libertatea presents you, in short, the story of Mihailo, told by his mother himself.
An unadulterated testimony, let to flow freely for the newspaper readers. The intertitles belong to the editor, the rest, every word, belongs to the mother.
A mother’s testimony
“Hello. I am Mișutka’s mother, a sailor from brigade number 36.
Misutka was born on June 23, 1998 in Apostolove, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. His name is Rotar after his father, but I don’t know if he has Romanian origins. We are all Ukrainians.
I no longer keep in touch with his father. I have a new husband, who loves and respects my boys from my first marriage, Mihailo (Misutka) and Volodimir, born in 2000.
My parents were born in both Ukraine and Russia. His grandmother, Svitlana Ivanivna Gerasimenko, was born in Russia in 1960. His grandfather, Viktor Mikolaiovich Gerasimenko, was born in 1956 in the Lugansk region.
Misutka spent his childhood with his younger brother Vova. Restless, cheerful. He liked to play on the console, but he always had many friends.
DOCUMENTS. An orchard needed MApN approval in the area of the NATO radar in Cârcea. The 230,000 sq m, 20 meter high Lidl warehouse, no
He used to cook very well. Delicious. When they were little, he and his brother would wait for me with treats after work. They always tried to surprise me. Pancakes, pancakes.
A childhood wish
He was doing a lot of sports since then. Even during the war he found time for sports. He also reached boxing, kickboxing. Don’t drink, don’t smoke.
He dreamed of being a soldier since childhood, he studied to be a soldier, majoring in computer systems engineering.
He joined the army in 2017, when he was only 19 years old, and two months later he signed a contract and went to defend Ukraine.
He has been in Mariupol since the first day of the war. At first, he and his colleagues defended the plant that bears the name of Ilici (no – Metallurgical Combine “Ilici” in Mariupol, the second largest in Ukraine, after ArcelorMittal Krivoi Rog). They were surrounded.
Then, and thanks to my son, they managed to break into the other factory, Azovstal. There they joined the Azov battalion.
I learned from the news that at some point they surrendered. And I didn’t know anything anymore.
Then, after almost a month of captivity, Misutka sent an SMS, saying that he was in captivity in Olenivka.
Other SMS messages followed. In every message he writes that he loves me and his younger brothers very much.
And his girlfriend. His girlfriend, who is from Manhuș (Manguș), 18 kilometers from Mariupol, has been living with us since March 26, I took her with me.
His friends filled out questionnaires and applications on various military websites and called hotlines.
From the post on Facebook I started to keep in touch with several mothers, sisters and also children of prisoners.
When Ptaska (Bird) was released the other day, I immediately congratulated her mother, Mrs. Svitlana.
For in these moments we greatly need help and the sharing of our thoughts. Everyone’s. His girlfriend’s, ours, the brothers’.
Misutka has another and younger brother, Pavlo, born on June 30, 2019.
I am the proud mother of three Cossacks”.
