"Lacking motivation? 23-year-old commando from the 3rd regiment Vadym Dovhoruk volunteered to go to Debaltseve after the last road had been cut. His group was caught into an ambush; an explosion torn Vadym's arm off; his comrade commander died of wounds within his sight; for the next three days he was hiding from the enemy at the -20 degree Celsius temperatures without any help, without water, food and warmth; he was crawling on the snow but did not want to give up; he was taken captive after he couldn't move anymore due to massive blood loss; both his legs were amputated in a hospital; he was exchanged and survived; he survived despite all forecasts and all medical textbooks," Butusov stressed.
According to him, Vadym has not lost his nerve and is pursuing a degree in psychology.
"Now the "National Hero of Ukraine" decoration holder studies psychology at a Kirovohrad university in order to help those who lose their faith and give up fighting. How does Vadym cope with his stresses? He's learning how to juggle a ball," the journalist added.
