Eider told about his health.
‘Seems like here it is, the freedom. It feels so far and so close... In our mortal world, everything is forgotten before you finish smoking a pack of cigarettes. Unfortunately, this is true. I would want people to remember this since 24 people are in remand centers of different countries for nothing. After all, all these people are military, they serve the people of Ukraine,’ the sailor said.
He said his wounds are healing, he still walks with a limp though.
‘It is difficult to climb and descend stairs, it is a huge strain on the leg, no matter how funny it may sound but I grab banister to walk. Sadly, that I can’t just get my leg up vertically, has no enough strength,’ Eider said.
The sailor added that the rest of the sailors hope to return back home soon.
‘I'm hoping for a quick political resolution, a little time has passed since. I want the people to remember. Happy upcoming holidays everybody! Take us home. Do not forget us,’ the sailor said.
Turchyn noted that the words ‘Glory to Ukraine’ were boldly crossed out by the censor.
As we reported earlier, the Russian Navy attacked the Ukrainian vessels in the Kerch Strait in the Sea of Azov. The vessels were damaged, and the crews captured by the Russian special services. Ukraine and the Western governments consider the attack an act of aggression. The Ukrainian sailors were taken to a remand center in Crimea, and then in Moscow, charged with the 'illegal crossing of the Russian territorial waters'. All sailors deny their guilt, claiming they are prisoners of war.
