To Defenders of Freedom

A 15-year-old girl with shot up legs drove a car to evacuate four adults in the Luhansk region

At first, the girl sat in the passenger seat, accompanied by three men and a woman. Russians fired at the vehicle and wounded two of the men, including the driver. That girl had to get behind the wheel. Meanwhile, the enemy had mined the route to their destination — Bakhmut.

The girl drove the car for close to 30 km. Most of the way she did with injured legs as the Russians had fired on the car again. She drove despite the pain to minimize the wounded passengers’ blood loss.
