The blast wave threw him onto his bed. 82-year-old composer Poklad and his wife were injured in a Russian missile attack: They used to be in the occupied territory.

Ihor Poklad and his wife suffered from a Russian missile attack

The famous Ukrainian composer, Shevchenko Prize winner, author of the music for the cartoons "Like Cossacks..." Ihor Poklad and his wife Svitlana were injured as a result of another Russian terrorist missile attack on the Kyiv region. The couple lives in Vorzel. At the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the village was under occupation, which the Poklads also had to endure. And on February 15 this year, Svitlana told how she was thrown several meters by a blast wave at night and was forced to hide with her husband in the basement.

The wife of the 82-year-old composer shared the details on her personal Facebook page. She admitted that she was very tired, so she did not immediately react to the information about the Russian ballistic missile launch. Having had such a terrifying experience, Svitlana decided to appeal to her compatriots to not ignore the alarms under any circumstances.

"Usually I follow the warnings about the takeoff of those monsters, but yesterday I was very tired, so I went to bed and slept. It was around 5:00. My "bell" went off. A threat in the direction of Vorzel. This was no joke. I got up. I went to the window, which I had opened at night because I didn't have enough air, and decided to close it just in case. And then... First, a tiny something in the sky, like the moon behind the clouds, and then a huge explosion. A huge explosion! And the sky was red. And I was hit by the frame and then thrown onto the bed. I was blown away. I realized it was a blast wave. My cheek was burning, my heart was jumping. Then there were several more explosions a little further away. Then I felt cold on my cheek, opened the basement, threw down my anxious suitcase and jackets, and helped my husband downstairs. The dogs hid, I couldn't get them down, the cats came down on their own," said Svitlana Poklad, showing a photo of the crater that was formed near Vorzel by a Russian shell.

The wife of the Ukrainian music legend realizes that during the two years of full-scale terrorist war, she has become accustomed to sirens, like many Ukrainians, but such incidents have become a reminder for her that she cannot relax for a second.

"The 'Shakheds' relaxed us a little bit. And this is ballistics. And it was incredibly scary. And I took it calmly until the first explosions! I blame myself for this! Very much! Although I know a place upstairs where you can still hide, there are chairs there all the time, but in this case, I definitely had to go down immediately," Poklad wrote.

Svitlana said she would never forgive the Russians for their terror. She suggested that a tragedy could have happened to her family on February 15 if the occupiers' missile had hit even closer to their home.

"This damn country will not stop! Never! And we simply have no right to ignore the alarms. For me, this morning was a lesson. And a warning: no one is forcing you, it's up to you. I decided, but it was too late! A tragedy could have happened. God forbid you to experience a blast wave. It is very dangerous... I will never forgive them for letting my husband down to the basement these days... What can I say about my late mother, who did not see the light for two weeks back in the spring of '22. Damned bastards! I hate them," Poklad's wife added emotionally.

As a reminder, in March 2022, it became known that Ihor and Svitlana Poklad were left without food and water in the occupied Vorzel, Kyiv region. They hid together in the basement and later stopped contacting each other, which frightened their relatives and colleagues. This was reported by journalist Dmytro Gordon, who appealed to caring people to save the couple from the occupation.

Volunteer Konstantin responded to the cry for help, and the next day he was already at the Poklads' house. He managed to take the Hero of Ukraine and his family out.

Later, Poklad's wife showed how their house was damaged by the Russian invaders. According to her, the invaders left behind devastation and tripwires, and turned the resort town itself into a "branch of hell."
