More information on wounded

Oleksii is a volunteer of the Ukrainian Volunteer Corps “Pravyi Sector”. He was injured on February 22, 2015 on the front line near Pisky Villag located not far from Donetsk Airport. During the attack a shell exploded near the soldier injuring his both legs and Oleksii was shell-shocked. Tight leg had only soft tissues damaged, while the entire left lower leg was ruptured.

In Dnepropetrovsk soldier had his soft tissue treated – despite the significant damage they succeeded to normalize the condition to a certain extent. Later, Oleksii was transferred for treatment in Kyiv, where due to the bone infection the soldier faced a threat of amputation again. Oleksii never consented to such doctors’ measure, so he had to change the place of treatment. One moment it seemed that everything terrible is behind after 10 surgeries. Doctors have installed an orthopedic nail into soldier’s lower leg, however, osteomyelitis manifested again – guy’s leg began to hurt and turned seriously swollen.

Oleksii resides in Kyiv. He joined ATO in January 2015 and immediately got to the front line, where held the ATO positions under constant attacks of enemy. Prior the war he worked in the automotive business – was in charge of the after-sales department at one of the enterprises. Soldier is fond of cars for a long time. Since the age of 9 he began to master the motor bike, and later –the car. Then he and his friends transported cars from Poland for sale.

Challenging times for Ukraine didn’t leave Oleksii unfazed. In late 2013 he joined Euromaidan, and after a while decided to go to the East. He says why should one suffer and wait, if you have health and strength!

And now it is our time to put the hero on his feet instead of suffering and waiting!
