Yuri Veselskiy and Viktor Kardash, ATO veterans, took part at the 38th Ukrainian Fashion Week.
After a week of training, Yuri Veselskiy, a paratrooper who lost his leg in Donbas, made his catwalk debut in the framework of the Ukrainian designer Sofia Russinovich’s show (ROUSIN), HB reports.
“My former commander convinced me. I have a great deal of respect for him, and I agreed,” Veselskiy said in his interview with reporters.
Viktor Kardash, a marine, participated in the Ukrainian Battle of Tailors show as a model, where he was given, as a gift, a unique suit tailored to him.
He's going to wear it on his wedding day next summer.
“However, I would wear it every week,” Viktor noted.
