Defenders of freedom

A Ukrainian soldier Bohdan, wounded in the battles for Sievierodonetsk, is evacuated from the area of combat operations. June 2, 2022, the Luhansk region.

Serhii Nuzhnenko tells a story of this photo: “Heavy fighting for Sievierodonetsk, we enter the city with the Foreign Legion in early June. There is a battle going on nearby, a shell lands and there are wounded, and we leave the city together with them. Later, doctors would say that some of the wounded died, pointing to the man in this photo.

I did not publish the photo with his face. However, I wrote on social media about the price of our independence on Ukraine’s Independence Day, and posted part of the photo, telling his story. A few days later, a man named Bohdan wrote to me and said that it was him in the photo and he was alive”.
