Vasyl Soroka, detained Ukrainian sailor

Vasyl Soroka, the wounded Ukrainian sailor who sustained the injury in the attack on Ukrainian seamen in Kerch Strait last November, is now recovering. Serhiy Badamshyn, the lawyer, said that the swelling on his injured hand disappeared, and the wounds have healed. On the other hand, Soroka will still have to wear a cast.

Last month, Soroka underwent surgery on his hand, as there were shell fragments in it; he suffered swelling and nerve damage because of that trauma.
