Early morning – the first evacuation of a warrior with acute appendicitis from the Kyiv Airport to the Emergency Hospital. He was then operated on by PFVMH abdominal surgeon Ivan Slichko.

The PFVMH continued setting up our new base. We also performed unit cohesion of the team, organized round-the-clock outposts to guard the building in which the PFVMF is deployed, and detained a spotter who decided to take “selfies” against the background of our base during the curfew.
