Zelenopillia tragedy: remembering how it was

Zelenopillia tragedy: remembering how it was

Today we are remembering the fourth anniversary of the deadly tragedy near Zelenopillia. At 4:30 AM in the night of 11th of July, 2014, russian occupiers and their mercenaries shelled the positions of the Ukrainian border guards and the troops of 24th and 72nd mechanized brigades and 79th airborne brigade with “Grad” MLRSs.

It was the first massive deployment of the RF army against the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Later, such offensives became regular. According to the Ministry of Defense official data, 36 servicemen were killed and about 100 got wounded in that massacre. Afterwards, medics admitted that they had never seen such severe injuries in their life, – seemed that the wounded military had “escaped from hell” that time.

These soldiers were defending the sector of Ukraine’s state boundary that remained open due to the militant’s attacks. The Ukrainian border guards and military prevented Russia from bringing its artillery and heavy weaponry onto the territory of Ukraine.

Ivan was among those few lucky to escape death then. He got heavy shrapnel injury; his leg had been almost torn away. Medics in conventional hospitals tried as hard as they could to save his leg, still the bones did not fuse up. Later, thanks to our collective effort, we succeeded in raising the money necessary for the fighter’s treatment within the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project. Today Ivan has sent us a very important photo. He looks absolutely recovered in it, standing on his own two feet with confidence. Also, Ivan remembers his comrades.

Let us remember all those killed on that scary day, by name:
