Despite losing both lower legs 55-year-old Vasyl Shtefko has joined the Armed Forces to fight against Russian invaders
Vasyl Shtefko from Kushnytsia came to the 128th Brigade to beat Russians who became invaders, destroy our infrastructure, kill civilians and behave worse than nazis. In 2004, when working in Russia, Mr. Stefko lost both his legs and returned to his home Kushnytsia on crutches. And when Russia invaded Ukraine, he could not stay at home.
“I could not sleep two nights long when I saw, what was happening,” Vasyl says. “Just could not stay at home, gathered my things, and went to the military enlistment office. I confess now, I lied to the commandment there, told them I got only one prosthesis. And applied to the 128th Brigade.”
