Now the fighter moves only with ctrutches, and his condition deteriorates. Traditional medicine offers a replacement of both joints, robbing the hero of a full life. However, doctors at ilaya Medical Company have developed a treatment regimen that will restore Yuriy’s knee joints.

In a circle of protesters he broke through”Berkut” lines under the guise of a postal worker and helped transport injured away from Maidan as well as making regular deliveries. In addition, in December 2013 he joined Automaidan, and in December 2015 took an active part in the blockade of the Crimea.
