"A fragment hit my knee when I was 700 meters away from home"

views: 976

I came under fire, but I survived. There was a mortar attack, shrapnel hit my knee. My house was 700 meters away. We were running, he heard an explosion and fell. They left the cattle we were grazing and ran home. The cattle died under that fire.

 Traumatologists from Donetsk who moved to Lyman took out the gragment from the knee joint. I can already move around the department on my own. Now I need to get through rehabilitation and exercise my leg.

 I wish my parents had money for that. My mother is disabled person, and my father is currently unemployed. However, the benefactors from the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation provide great assistance.

They said that the rehabilitation will take quite a long time, but I set my heart on it. I want to walk around my hometown.
