Both Artem's grandparents were military. After school he joined the Hetman's Academy named after Peter Sahaidachny. He dreamed of a specialty of airmobile troops, but that year they did not recruit to this faculty, so he chose a training course for a tanker. He has acquired a specialty of "control of the operations of units of tank troops".
- In August 2011, after his release from the academy, he was a platoon commander. Because of the closeness to the house, he chose the service in the 30th separate mechanized brigade.
- In 2012, the first competition for the best tank platoon took place in Ukraine, where Artem and his unit won second place.
- In December 2012 he was promoted to Senior Lieutenant.
- In 2013, he was selected to the Ukrainian team of participants in the upcoming Tank Biathlon competitions scheduled to take place in Russia in August 2014. He married in January 2014.
