Mykolaiv Paratrooper Wounded in Fighting Married During Treatment in Hospital. PHOTOS

The wedding ceremony was held recently in Irpen where a wounded soldier of the separate airmobile brigade of highly mobile paratroopers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Oleksandr is being treated.

Censor.NET reports with reference to the Defense Ministry of Ukraine that the soldier said that he and his fiancée Victoria planned to get married this summer but the tumultuous events in the eastern part of Ukraine and his participation in the ATO prevented them from realizing their plans.

A way out was found unexpectedly during his stay in the hospital, where the brave paratrooper ended up after receiving a gunshot wound in the arm. Volunteers from the Country Assistance Foundation "Wings of Phoenix" offered him help. They promised to take care of the wedding ceremony as well as the acquisition of all necessary things: engagement rings, wedding dress, etc. Given that the soldier's health was already satisfactory, he gladly accepted the offer.

He did not tell his wife about the wedding until the last moment, and when she came to the hospital to visit her loved one, he proposed to Victoria and she, of course, said "Yes".

At the wedding the couple stood on the traditional embroidered towel accompanied by the paratrooper's brothers-in-arms: two guys both named Pavlo, who along with Oleksandr are being treated in the hospital. The honeymoon journey was flying in a hot air balloon which was organized by the "Wings of Phoenix" foundation.

Oleksandr and his wife Victoria expressed their gratitude to the foundation volunteers Viktoriia Fishchuk and Nelli Stelmakh for helping to organize the wedding ceremony.

After the treatment the trooper wants to return to his military unit which is now performing tasks within the framework of the ATO.
