Yura has been in the department of maxillofacial surgery at a hospital in Makeyevka for about a month. He is still up for a long treatment, reports blogger pauluskp.
Two operations have already been made: phlegmon of the submental area were opened and stitched. But as Head of the Department Serhiy Rumyantsev says the youngster has fractures of the articular process of the lower jaw, and the need to install special plates otherwise he will not be able to chew even bread.
Sikanov's neighbors sent him three thousand hryvnia - they phoned the farmer who rents the land units inherited by his mother. He paid the rent in advance. The money was enough for two surgeries and the purchase of yogurt and juice.
It should be noted that after the shooting of the documentary Mine #8 on the exploitation of child labor in the illegal mines in Donetsk oblast the underage hero of the film Yuriy Sikanov started having problems with the police.
The film made by Estonian director Mariana Kaat tells how Yura, the grandson of once powerful Soviet factory manager, earns in illegal artisan mines to feed his two sisters, his stepfather and mother who drinks alcohol.
