He has made some posts  on Facebook with updates. Not too frequently, but enough to know he was (as of the post) still alive and in the fight.

This comes from Steven Yampolsky:

"Hey, Abi,
Spoke to Ruslan yesterday. He's doing fine. Back in the shop working, sending out orders, etc. He's even able to fly. For a while, they were now allowed to fly. He's working getting ready to release a new 3-bladed prop for electrics and working on a new 3-bladed prop for Stalker 75+"

I also spoke with Sergei Solomianikov. He lives in Vinnytsia which was bombed by Russia a few days ago, killing something like 30 people, including 3 children. Sergei and his family are fine.

Korotchaev, maker of Stalker engines is starting up production again but I don't know if he's back in Kharkiv or not.
Andrei Yatsenko, last I heard, is working in Poland but that was back in April. I worry about Andrei and Yuri since I haven't heard from them.
