In one of the clashes with pro-Russian terrorists on the territory of the former Donetsk airport, Dmytro Yarosh, leader of Pravyi Sector (Right Sector) and a Verkhovna Rada deputy, received serious arm wounds and light head wounds, reported LIGABusinessInform, January 21.
Kharkiv volunteer Roman Donyk was the first to report the news on Facebook.
“To prevent a new wave of fakes, obituaries and panic, the “Leader,” aka Hawk, the MP Dmytro Yarosh has been lightly wounded. By shrapnel from Grad rockets. He has no broken bones but some tissue damage. He does not need to be hospitalized. Antiseptic was applied and he is continuing to fight,” Donyk wrote.
Yuriy Butusov, chief editor of Censor.NET also reported on Yarosh’s wounding.
“He was evacuated from the battlefield. The injuries turned out to be light, from exploding shells,” the journalist wrote, and later provided more detailed information.
“A doctor examined him. The initial diagnosis — open fracture by shrapnel of the lower third of the shoulder (to the elbow). Arm seriously damaged, head wounds not serious — helmet saved him, tangentially affected,” he wrote.
