Today, at the request of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zhemchugov has begun treatment at the University Hospital Cologne.
German doctors agreed to treat Zhemchugov and try to at least partly save his sight.
Volodymyr Zhemchugov was seriously wounded September 28, 2015 in a mine explosion, and then captured by militants. However, his physical condition deteriorated sharply due to inadequate medical care while being held in captivity.
The Ukrainian became the target of blackmail and propaganda of terrorist leadership. They refused to exchange a man with his arms amputated and visually impaired declaring him a saboteur and arranging a show "trial" of him.
September 17, 2016, he was released as a result of long and complex negotiations, including those in the framework of the Tripartite Liaison Group.
