49-year-old neurosurgeon Armen Nikoghosian quit his job in Tyumen and rushed to save the Ukrainian soldiers, write "Facts".
He also drove an ambulance and, together with two assistants - a driver and a nurse Alena Ilya - four months assisting the wounded in the hottest parts of our country.
"A Tyumen I quit as soon as I saw the news about events in Ukraine. Rushed to Kiev. I have family, children. Immediately went to the Maidan. Couple of days it was quiet, and nineteenth of January, Epiphany, began the fight on the street, Grushevskogo... The wounded was hundreds! One case I will never forget. Bullet in the shoulder and through the neck into the skull. However, I managed to remove it and revive the patient. "Everything worked: the boy alive, often calls me"- he said.
Then the doctor went to work in the area of ATO - they say that an ambulance can get, even where APCs are not.
"Only scumbags shooting at ambulance. A professional military - among many Russian soldiers terrorists - respected medical work.
Once brought food for the wounded, and all of a sudden we were stopped at the checkpoint of the separatists. And was so politely asked for a pill for a toothache. Well, I gave the medication.
They say, "you Armen with Ukrainian symbolism do not go/travel, and we will shoot accurately." Now, we have reanimobile [medical car?] Ukrainian flag on it; on me I have on a baseball cap and T-shirt with the coat of arms of Ukraine.
"I will go - I told them. Because I was in terrotory of Ukraine!" said Nikogosian.
