Originally from Ivano-Frankivsk, a Ukrainian marine who served in the First Feodosia (Crimea) platoon, part of the Ukrainian forces that were the last ones to leave Crimea.
Serhiy and his colleagues were captured by the Russian army. After the Russian army officers asked the marines to betray Ukraine and join Russian force, Sergey refused and started to sing Ukraine’s National Anthem. He was severely beaten up and is now in a hospital outside of Kyiv with skull injuries. Serhiy’s family lost all of their personal items including their home, money and documents.
Serhiy and his family – his wife and a 7 years old son – needed help to get him through this long rehabilitation period.
We sent him $300.
