Detailed information about injured soldier

Viktor – soldier of consolidated demining squad. Injured on 5 July 2014 near Sloviansk. Then, immediately after liberation of city, Ukrainian troops were covered by separatist fire, resulting in collapsed building, where Viktor was with his swore brothers. A piece of rebar fell on his leg and caused a fracture.

Due to the fact that immediately after injury he did not get proper medical aid, festering process began leading to about 30 surgeries. Then doctors tried to restore small defect by means of conventional methods, but eventually they had to “clean” the area of injury again, and so several times. Moreover, soft tissue began to die at Voktor’s foot. With such problems soldier got to the Central clinical military hospital, where, except of hospital doctors, orthopedic traumatologist of medical center ilaya Volodymyr Oksymets joined the struggle for soldier’s health. Soldier underwent some surgeries, which became the first step of leg saving – doctors stopped the destruction of bone and prepared leg for bone restoration using biotechnology.

Viktor – professional soldier, officer, has been servicing in Ukrainian Armed Forces for 17 years. The soldier is from Kyiv region and his beloved wife is waiting for him at home. It is interesting that our hero is the candidate master of sports of volleyball. Viktor joined ATO on 16th April 2014. His main merit – participation in one of the first major operations in the East – liberation of Sloviansk.

Viktor is looking forward to return to the East – only there he can see his vocation, and feels very upset when mentioning that he lost a year due to the bone, instead of defending his homeland.

Now we must restore soldier’s health – we can determine the fate of hero!
