Russian Commander saves 90 wounded Ukrainian fighters

Heard a story from our front-line medic about how one Russian commander, risking his life, helped him to save about 90 wounded Ukrainian fighters. He personally explained where there were still other wounded, he called the separatists and his own personnel, warned that the International Red Cross is coming for the injured, then told our medic to stay silent and without opening his mouth to collect the wounded into a car. Then, during the transportation of the heavily injured into a Ukrainian hospital, he personally ran ahead before separatist checkpoints and ordered them not to fire. He gave clear instructions how not to run into other separatist checkpoints.

I have very strong opinions of our “brotherly” people right now. And that is putting it mildly. But stories like these need to be heard and told.

Then, after the Victory, these stories will help us to remain Human.

This heroic medic of ours will be on today’s Brave Hearts. And a couple of other complete surprises that showed up right in the studio.

  1. That is a great story. I hope one day we know his name and it in detail.

    I would guess he is of Ukrainian ethnicity most likely. If not, than a big Russian heart. Brave and heroic man!
