"Heart transplantation. After a 15-year break, we did it. Joint team of the Heart Institute and Kovel Regional Hospital," the hospital reported on Facebook.

The heart recipient was brought in from Kyiv as it was impossible to transport a donor heart to the country's capital.

The heart was transplanted by Borys Todurov, who arrived from Kyiv with the team and worked together with Kovel doctors.

They also transplanted a kidney there and transported another one to Kyiv where transplantation surgery was performed at the Shalimov Institute next morning, said Head of IDonor NGO Iryna Zaslavets.
