In Lviv, a girl found a 22-year-old fighter of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the Zhytomyr region, who lost his arm and decided to leave his beloved so as not to be a burden. This is reported by the First Medical Association of Lviv.
Sergey Kostyuchenko was on Maidan with his father in 2014. Two years ago I signed a contract with the Armed Forces of Ukraine. First, the guy defended the Kyiv region, then the Luhansk region. On May 29, Sergei was wounded at the front. On this day, he wanted to go home to celebrate his beloved anniversary of the meeting, but he received a combat mission.
«When the shelling started, Sergei was in the field. He only remembers the explosion. When he opened his eyes, his right hand was gone, the left was damaged. Broken legs. He couldn't get up and couldn't call for help — the lung was ruptured. The guy recalls: he was waiting for death, because it was very painful. The only thing I was worried about — that his body will not be found. At that moment, a brother was driving by in a car. Sergei raised his leg with the last of his strength. And he saw him», — says the message.
The guy was first in intensive care, his arm was amputated. When I woke up, I decided to part with my beloved, so as not to be a burden for her. However, Yulia, through Sergey's brothers-in-arms, found out where he was and came to the hospital. There she proposed marriage to her lover. The couple got engaged right in the medical facility.
Now Sergei has another difficult operation, as he may lose his left arm. They plan to install a prosthesis for the Ukrainian defender, and they are raising money to help.
