Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau replied to the letter of the Ukrainian boy who is now undergoing treatment in Montreal; in August 2015, Mykola Nyzhnykovsky lost his legs and an arm, while his brother was killed by the explosion of a live shell in combat area in Donbas.

Trudeau posted that at Twitter.

In his letter, the Ukrainian wrote he’d lost his hope for normal life, but then, medics in Montreal not only helped him but also supported him a lot. ‘Before, I didn’t imagine how they are, these Canadians. Now, the flags of Ukraine and Canada decorate my new legs, almost like tatoos’, Nyzhnykovsky wrote. He thanked the Canadian government for the assistance and a new hope for future.

In his reply, Trudeau thanked the boy for the letter, said he was happy about his successful ongoing recovery. He added that Canada ‘would continue to support such brave Ukrainians’.
