Bilokon, a Ukrainian record holder, was confirmed deceased by the President of the Ukrainian Greco-Roman Wrestling Federation, Vadim Kisil, in a Facebook post.

"Oleksandr Bilokon, the world and European powerlifting champion and a record holder in the Ukrainian Book of Records, has fallen in the war against Russian fascists," Kisil wrote.

He recalled that Bilokon was one of the strongest men in Ukraine. In 2017, Bilokon set a Ukrainian record by moving a truck with a trailer full of people in the center of Odessa.
