Serhiy Ryzhenko, Chief Doctor at Mechnikov Regional Clinical Hospital in Dnipropetrovsk

A mine orchestra plays painfully.
Denys, a major with the [Ukrainian] Armed Forces, is 34 years of age.
[He received] heavy mine-explosive wounds in the village of Vodyane.
Open head injury, closed abdominal trauma. Severe fractures of both legs.
[He] endured lengthy surgeries.
[Denis is currently facing] the risk of an ischemic left foot. [He] had a colossal blood transfusion.
Resuscitators, neurosurgeons, and trauma surgeons saved [his] life; [we are] now trying to save his leg.
The soldier says weakly: “[I] want to love and not to fear.”
