Vasyl Soroka is one of the 24 seamen illegally held by Russia; the sailors and the three vessels of the Ukrainian Navy were captured in Kerch Strait in November 2018. Russia claims they 'breached the naval border' and opened fire on the Ukrainian ships. Soroka and another two sailors were wounded in this firing incident.
