About project

The onset of the war highlighted an extremely acute problem for Ukraine. Streets, sidewalks, public and commercial institutions – almost the entire urban space is virtually inaccessible to people with disabilities. There are problems with the attitude of society: people with prosthetics or wheelchairs are still perceived as having a sad fate, few treat them as equals to the rights of their fellow citizens.

The participants in the The Victors project are strong guys who are not ashamed of their injuries. They fought for the Motherland, they got terrible wounds in the battle for Ukraine – what do they have to be ashamed of? These guys are a model for others more than 500 veterans throughout Ukraine who have suffered the same serious injuries in the ATO. And not only for them – for all other people of different sex and age, who have lost limbs or found themselves in a wheelchair.

The purpose of the project is to show Ukraine these men as they are in fact: strong, inspirational, purposeful. The purpose of the project is to realize their dreams and help them to join society, to live life to full force. The purpose of the project is to show that even after terrible injuries life is not over, support and understanding is very important to all of us.

The social multimedia project The Victors, was founded as joint initiative between TSN (channel 1+1) and the magazine Viva!, and is dedicated to ATO veterans who have lost limbs as a result of hostilities, but have not lost their spirit. They did not dwell in hopelessness and stove to overcome adversity themselves. It is our duty to show clearly that often restrictions placed on these men is the fruit of our doubts – not theirs. The basis of the updated The Victors-2″ project is the 15 impressive photo histories created by Alexandr Morderer and Tatiana Rublova, as well as video art, a series of news stories from TSN and a special charity issue of the magazine “VIVA! The Victors”. The curator of the project is the well-known TV presenter and volunteer Solomiya Vitwitska.

“When I went through the first training on a sports prosthetic received through the US aid program, I cried, because my dream was fulfilled,” says Vadym Maznychenko. He lost his arm and leg in ATO, and eventually he almost resigned to never being able to run. Vadym was not abandoned – thanks to support and help, and his own self-belief he overcame all doubts and seized his chance to live. Now Vadym is actively engaged in running, rowing, riding a bike and living to the full.

In the updated part of the project, in addition to ATO veterans with prosthetics and wheelchairs, paralympic champions also take part. These are the protagonists all of Ukraine are proud of. Every day they work hard to train their bodies and minds, they achieve new high-quality daily results and inspire others to move forward and not give in to difficulties.

The project The Victors pays special attention to the psychological adaptation and rehabilitation of veterans ATO. Project partner, the team of charitable organization Heart of a Warrior headed by Roman Torgovytskiy, are convinced that ATO veterans can become the driving force behind radical changes in the state. They need only a little help – to learn how to direct their experience and potential in the right direction and to change not only their own lives, but their environment. That is why the development of qualitative psychological help in Ukraine is an extremely important task in the matter of rehabilitation of ATO veterans.

The project is complex, therefore, it pays attention not only to the psychological side of the rehabilitation of veterans. The organizers and partners of the project attach considerable importance to the physiological, in particular, the sports rehabilitation of veterans returning to the peaceful life after wounds, as well as the development of sports prosthetics in Ukraine.

Runs

To participate in the project, the team from The Victors plans to attract residents throughout Ukraine. This is done in the form of a special charity racing marathon Run Ukraine. This is a race for a short distance of 2 kilometers, participation in which is open to everyone. Half of the money collected during the registration will be transferred to the charitable purpose. On the collected funds will produce a modern sports prosthesis for one of the heroes, for whose sake they are running. The past charity race took place on June 25 in Odesa, the date of the next we will announce in due course.

Hero

Mykola Poltorak – from Odessa, the father of four children. An active and active patriot, Mykola was extremely worried about the events on Independence Square. Without hesitation, he came to Kyiv to support the Revolution of Dignity. After returning home, with the beginning of the war, Mykola volunteered for the army. To protect his children and his native land from invasion – this was the main stimulus for him. He served as a sniper in the 18th battalion of the territorial defense of Odesa, in the 131st separate intelligence battalion of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, and later became a special special-purpose officer – he joined the company of deep reconnaissance.Poltorak-collage 44

In the summer of 2015, Mykola participated in an operation on territory temporarily occupied by the enemy, and was seriously injured. A blast left him seriously wounded, however he managed his own evacuation from the battlefield – you understand what kind of power of the spirit we are talking about?

Despite the consequences of severe injuries, Poltorak today is confidently moving forward. He has an amazing family – a wife and four children – who are very supportive of him. Thanks to his family, Mykola remained strong, and started a business that is rarely found in Ukraine. He develops permaculture – an ecologically pure farming system based on interactions with natural ecosystems.

This year Mykola Poltorak has become a participant in the social multimedia project The Victors, in order to show by example – in spite of severe life-changing events, amputation, disability, returning to a full-fledged peaceful life is possible!

Mykola is already used to a prosthetic, but it is not suitable for sports.

Where does the money go?

Mykola dreams of returning to sport – to fully run and train. In order to realize the dream of this hero, prosthetists from the Center of Prosthetic and Orthopedic help “Tellus”, which is based in Odesa, picked up for him a special jogging prosthesis. A light arc will quickly overcome short and long distances, and the careful adaptation of the foot to the weight and impact load will make running as comfortable as possible. Mykola’s prosthesis will combine the American artificial foot Nitro Running from the manufacturer Freedom Innovations, as well as the usual Mickey sleeves with a thin silicone cover Otto Bock. Lightweight arc is made by hand from ultra-lightweight materials, taking into account all parameters of the patient.

The cost of a sports prosthetic is 135,000 UAH. At this stage, The Victors is now going to have the All-Ukrainian Center of Volunteers The People’s Project on board within the framework of a separate charitable project, we plan to raise part of the funds for the production of a sports prosthesis for Mykola.

Mykola and other project participants took part in Odesa on June 25 in a charity race for a distance of 2 km – The Victors (Odessa Half Marathon 2017). All this charity race and fundraising was arranged within the framework of a separate People’s Project charity project – a kind of gratitude to the brave and sympathetic warrior who sacrificed his physical well-being. An excellent modern prosthesis, which we collect are collecting money for from all over the world, will open up new opportunities in life for Mykola. Of course, as far as we can, we will help – when did we throw our defenders in trouble?
