More about the wounded


Vitalii – is a volunteer from battalion OUN. Received a gunshot wound of the hip during the battle near the village Pisky on April 13, 2015. Immediately after the injury he was taken captive by militants, and he was treated in the Regional Hospital of Donetsk for 3 months.

After his release from captivity Vitaly was treated in Odessa and Kiev, he underwent lots of operations. But there is still femoral osteomyelitis and no fusion. The hero sought help from a social project “Biotech-rehabilitation –of the injured”, where his blood brother Ihor has already undergone a course of treatment, and doctors have developed a treatment regimen that will help restore the bone and save the soldier’s leg.

Vitalii lives in Zhytomyr region. He voluntarily joined the ATO at the very beginning of active hostilities – in June 2014. Firstly he fought in the volunteer battalions “Shakhtarsk” and “Sviata Maria,” fought his way through Ilovaisk, Mariupol and many other flash points. Previously he was injured twice, and each time returned to the line. During the last Vitalii’s injure his eye was damaged, which requires prosthetic, but now the main problem is his leg.

Let’s help Vitalii to recover his health!
