War is a deadly thing on this earth and it brings nothing but disaster. From lives lost to assets loss, the war leaves a heavy toll on the territory which is facing the war. The European nation Ukraine is going through a similar situation. Superpower nation Russia waged a deadly war against Ukraine.
As a disturbing example of what a war can do, Ukraine released a picture of a soldier before and after the war. The soldier became unrecognizable and he became very thin and lost an arm. Before he was captured by the Russian forces, the soldier was fit and healthy and when he was released his ribs popped up.
Going into detail, Ukrainian soldier Mykhailo Dianov and a bunch of soldiers were captured by the Russian forces last year during the Azovstal steel works battle in Mariupol. Nearly one year after catching the Ukrainian soldiers, Russia released the soldiers under the Geneva Conventions. More than 200 soldiers were released.
Sharing the heart-wrenching picture, Ukraine said that is what Russia is doing by continuing the Nazi ideology. Ukraine said Mykhailo Dianov and a few others survived the Russian captivity. The picture shared by the official handle of the Ukraine Defense wing speaks volumes.
“Ukrainian soldier Mykhailo Dianov is among the fortunate ones: in contrast with some of his fellow POWs, he survived russian captivity. This is how russia “adheres” to the Geneva Conventions. This is how russia continues the shameful legacy of Nazism,” the Ukraine Defense wing said on Twitter.
Mykhailo Dianov is not in a good shape and the picture shows scars and bruises. It is said that the Shrapnel shell was stuck in Mykhailo Dianov’s arm and it was pulled out of the arm without giving anesthesia. His sister reportedly said her brother’s health condition is not good and he might need treatment for a long time.
Political observers are saying that this is another example of the brutality Russian forces use. Ever Since Russia waged a war against Ukraine, we have been seeing a lot of disgusting things. Earlier, international media stunned everyone by saying that Russian forces are targeting Ukrainian women and raping them.
