At Israeli Hospitals, Victims of Ukraine Conflict Find Themselves in Experienced Hands

Artem Zapototskyi, shot at a 'peaceful demonstration' in Kiev, is one of 10 Ukrainians who were airlifted to Israel for treatment.

At first, he thought he’d been hit by rubber bullets. But after Artem Zapototskyi was taken to a nearby hospital in Kiev, doctors determined his injuries were caused by live ammunition. One bullet went straight through his body, tearing through his spine before piercing his lung on its way out. The other is still lodged somewhere in his shoulder.
