Kateryna Hordiychuk, a young woman in her 30s, sits down on a neatly made bed in the hospital room to tell her husband’s war story while he is out for a cigarette. The room is full of light, freshly repaired and looks more like home with a new modern refrigerator, a microwave stove and some fruits in the vase on the table. There are six beds in the room, but only two are occupied by Gordichuk and her husband Serhiy.

Serhiy Hordiychuk, 35, from Volyn Oblast was mobilized
in mid-March for 10-day military training, but had to undergo  urgent
stomach surgery and stayed in military hospital for treatment. After the
rehabilitation the man was sent to country’s east and then injured in a fight
on Aug. 4. 

“He spent a couple of weeks in the East and got an arm
injury, so here we are,” his wife says casually as the door opens and Serhiy
Hordiychuk comes in.
