Yury Mysak, a resident of Vinnytsia, is being rehabilitated in Lviv, who on July 14, 2022 was hit by a Russian missile attack on the city and suffered 65% burns.
At that moment, the man and his friend were in the car, they had to go on business, according to the Ministry of Health.
As a result of the explosion, the car burst into flames, the men ended up on the asphalt. Yuriy, recalling that moment, says that everything was like in a scary movie in slow motion: fire, blood, debris, mutilated people, gutted cars. There is a ringing in the ears, and the taste of iron in the mouth.
Yuri and his friend ran away from the epicenter of the impact, the man’s clothes were on fire: his pants were almost completely burned, his T-shirt was burning and melting on the sleeves and in the stomach area.

Yuriy was first sent to the Pirogov regional hospital, then to Lviv, and from there to Poland for a month and a half.
After returning to Ukraine, scars began to grow on the man’s body. According to him, the pain did not subside for almost a moment. Currently, the man is receiving treatment and undergoing rehabilitation within the framework of the “Unburned” project, where Ukrainians are treated free of charge for non-domestic burns and scars.
Currently, Yuriy cannot do many things on his own – for example, to dress or walk.
Despite the fact that his hands are completely covered with scars, Yuriy does not lose his optimism. Glad to be alive.
