Volodymyr Honcharovsky is assisted down a set of stairs after his sonâs Christening. Proper infrastructure for the physically disabled barely exists in Ukrainian cities, towns and villages.
Volodymyr Honcharovsky was severely wounded on February 20, 2014 when he was shot three times, twice in the back and once in the right arm, while attempting to reach wounded demonstrators who had been shot by security forces during the Euromaidan Revolution. Mr. Honcharovsky underwent multiple operations in Ukraine and Germany but has significant and persistent issues, including extreme pain throughout his body due to nerve damage.
