The Western Regional Directorate of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine reported this.

“In war, every second counts. Especially when it comes to the soldiers' lives. The sooner the wounded soldier is provided with medical care, the sooner he is taken to a stabilization center, the more likely it is that his life will be saved or that the injury will cause less damage to his health,” the post reads.

Border guards rescued a seriously wounded man, evacuating him incredibly quickly

They say that during the fighting in the Vovchansk direction, an evacuation team of border guards managed to evacuate their seriously wounded colleague in an incredible 15 minutes.

“We received an order to go after the 300th in armor, so we jumped into our ‘Roshel’ and immediately moved,” recalls the border guard with the nickname Eksi.

The soldier was wounded by shrapnel from a drone.

“It was an FPV, the shrapnel hit the soldier's legs and head, and he was completely covered in blood. When I was helping him, he was already losing consciousness, but later, after receiving drips, he regained consciousness and even walked to the next evacuation vehicle,” added border guard Jan.

Fighting in the Kharkiv region

On May 21, it became known that in Vovchansk, Kharkiv region, where the fighting for the city is currently ongoing, there are about 100 more locals on the territory occupied by the invaders, and the Russians are not letting them evacuate, threatening to shoot them.

Recently, it also became known that on May 15, Russians shot three people who were trying to evacuate from Vovchansk in the Kharkiv region on their own, two of them died on the spot.
