Censor.NET earlier said that the people's hero of Ukraine, Volodymyr Halahan suffered from a serious spinal disease – the cancer spread almost throughout all of his vertebrae. The fighter, who time and again proven himself in the battles near Mariupol, started undergoing chemotherapy. The family was raising funds to treat him abroad.
Halahan said in one of his last interviews with Censor.NET: "I was put in charge of many combat operations but my units have never suffered casualties."
