On 24 February 2022, Yevhen, together with his friends, volunteered to join the first aid battalion on the front line. They provided life-saving support and evacuation of the injured.

As they left for the front, they sent their families to the rear – to a village in western Ukraine.

As soon as they rise from the celebratory feast, they have to go back to the front…
