10 Ukrainian soldiers, veterans of the Donbas conflict, will be treated in the United States, said a reporter of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“Currently, the servicemen undergo treatment in Kharkiv, northeastern Ukraine. All of them have complicated injuries, which need prosthetic care. They will go to the USA and continue to be treated there. The U.S. side promised to cover all relevant expenses, as a number of sponsors came up and agreed to provide everything necessary for their treatment. Most of the soldiers who lost their limbs get their prostheses from the government. Unfortunately, these artificial limbs are not always good enough to provide free movement and make soldiers’ lives easier. And more functional prostheses are very expensive; they are made abroad, so the government can’t allocate funds for such prosthetic care. That’s why Ukrainian volunteers raise funds and help the servicemen file all the papers needed for undergoing treatment in America”, the reporter said.
She added that Kharkiv regional state administration and civil judicial organizations assist the wounded troopers, too.
