Vlad Wojciechowski 
At the entrance to a dugout, Vlad and other soldiers detonated an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM). All of them received injuries of varying severity, but fortunately survived. Our friend’s life is not in danger. Vlad got a light concussion and after a short loss of consciousness was taken to the hospital.

Vlad Wojciechowski is a well-known Ukrainian anti-fascist, one of the founder of Borotba in Odessa.

On May 2, 2014, he defended the people during the massacre at the Odessa House of Trade Unions, and narrowly escaped. Afterward he emigrated to Crimea as a political refugee. In Sepetember 2014 he was arrested in Odessa and charged by the Kiev junta with creating a terrorist organization, the UKA (Ukrainian Red Army), and carrying out a series of explosions near administrative buildings. Several months later he was exchanged for prisoners of war, soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, held by the Donbass republics. He served in the ranks of the Ghost Brigade (Prizrak), and then in the People’s Militia of the Lugansk People’s Republic.

We wish our comrade a speedy recovery!

Hold on, Vlad!
