"Units of volunteer medics (ASAP) who work near Popasna and Zaitseve need equipment for their ambulances. They need one machine for artificial lung ventilation (the most important!) as well as ECG recorders and defibrillators. This is about 43,000 hryvnia total ($1,769 - ed.). We would like to reach this amount," Sinitsyn noted.

For this purpose, the volunteers of Narodnyi Tyl organization decided to auction the medals.
