During his visit to Ukraine on January 12, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, together with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, visited wounded soldiers in hospital. They are being treated in a medical facility in Kyiv.
This was reported on the website of the President's Office. The Ukrainian soldiers who were seriously injured in the Zaporizhzhia and Kupiansk sectors, as well as near Avdiivka, said they wanted to recover and return to duty as soon as possible.
The defenders of Ukraine called the victory of our country over the Russian invaders their most important wish.
According to the report, Sunak was impressed by the courage of soldier Illia Herasymenko. The soldier lost his leg after repelling an assault by the enemy army. He is now preparing for prosthetics and plans to lead an active life despite everything.
Junior Sergeant Mykhailo Honderuk told Sunak and Zelenskyy that he most wants to meet his family, including his brother and father, who are also defending Ukraine at the front. Honderuk intends to devote most of his life to the military.
The Ukrainian president and the British prime minister also spoke with Lieutenant Nazarii Koval, who is also preparing for prosthetics. Sunak said that the soldier's two daughters will be proud of what their father did for Ukraine.
"The Head of State thanked the soldiers for defending Ukraine and wished them a speedy recovery. Volodymyr Zelenskyy presented the defenders with the Order For Courage of the third class for personal courage, selfless actions in the defense of state sovereignty, territorial integrity of Ukraine, and loyalty to the military oath," the statement said.
