‘Aidar’ [battalion] fighter Vyacheslav Buynovskyi who became disabled as a result of injuries near the city of Shchastya in Luhansk region, needs help. Volunteers who watch over Vyacheslav turned to the Editor of LB.ua.

“The funds for the prostheses are already being collected. But there is another problem – housing,” says volunteer Anna. Vyacheslav and his mother live in an apartment that is 12.5 sq. meters of residential space in Krolevets, Sumy region. The passage is narrow, a wheelchair will not pass through even in the corridor, nor to the outdoor facilities. It’s hard to imagine how they will continue to live here, I cannot in any way imagine him jumping on one foot to the toilet outside and with his only whole hand holding himself up so as not to fall into the pit, and I also cannot imagine how the retired mother will pull a wheelchair with a control panel into the corridor, where it just does not work. The wheelchair weighs about 100 kg (with the remote control, which was given by the Germans).”

Vyacheslav’s mother Katerina told LB.ua, that the City Council put them sixth in line for a place. “But there is no construction in Korolevets, unless a single occupant dies and the apartment passes to the City Council then, maybe, we will be allocated something.”

Relatives and volunteers are hoping that someone in power, or just some well-off people, will want to help solve Vyacheslav’s housing problem.
