More information about the wounded:
Oleksandr, a fighter with the 79th Brigade (from Mykolaiv). He was wounded June 26, 2014 near the border with the Russia Federation near the border crossing points of Izvaryne and Dovzhanskiy. It was when Oleksandr was performing an important task – to bring his counterparts out from under constant attack from Russia. On the road the convoy of soldiers was fired open several times and the APC, which was carrying Oleksandr, was hit by a shell. The soldier received an open head injury and broken leg, his colleagues were also seriously wounded. He says that just a few days before this event, volunteers had provided them with quality helmets, and if it were not for this helmet, Oleksandr may not have survived.
After first aid, the fighter was transported to Dnipropetrovsk, where he was treated for the head injury and had a plate mounted to his skull. Then Oleksandr was treated in hospitals in Odesa and Mykolaiv, where he endured six operations, but traditional medical treatments have not helped to restore the bones of his foot, and the hero still relies on crutches to walk.
