On Friday March 17th near Avdiivka Ukrainian Hero Andriy "Фазан" Nahirniy was seriously injured by a trip wire activated mine set up by Russian terrorists.

He has since undergone extensive and complicated surgery to his head and skull. Neurosurgeons managed to  remove 14 pieces of shrapnel from his skull. One more piece of shrapnel remains lodged deep inside his head.
Фазан Fazan is one of the few fighters in Ukraine that has fought for the entire length of the war. He went to the front in 2014 as a volunteer fighter and served until his injury in March 2017. Fazan had been involved in some of the hottest and most dangerous episodes of the war with Russia including the re-capturing of Pisky, the infamous battle for the Donetsk International Airport, and most recently Avdiivka.
 He has sacrificed everything and now he needs our help.  
Funds are needed to assist with medical expenses and in helping Andriys' pregnant wife and two children move to Dnipro to be near their father as he recovers from these horrific injuries. All money raised will be donated directly to Iryna Nahirniy.
Every dollar counts and no donation is too small.

Update on condition:
-Medical status is still listed as serious but stable.
-14 pieces of shrapnel have been successfully removed.
-Another 15 pieces still remain in his back, neck, arms and legs.
-One piece of shrapnel remains in his head. This piece entered through the forehead, travelled between the lobes of his brain and is wedged up against the back of his skull.
-He has now developed an edema in that location.
-The doctors at the Mechnikov hospital in Dnipro have done everything that they can and are now focused on keeping him stable.
-Once stable enough he will need to be transported to Kyiv for further operations to remove the rest of the shrapnel.
-He will then be moved to a medical facility in Europe for additional procedures and a lengthy rehabilitation.
-Fazan suffers from severe headaches and can only tolerate listening to whispers. He can only open his eyes for a few minutes per day due to the pain.
-Fazans pregnant wife Iryna Nahirna has moved to Dnipro and is by his bedside. 
-He has regained somewhat of an appetite and ate two meals for the first time since suffering his injuries.
-He remains in good spirits, feeling strong and with our help he will be able to make a good recovery.

Про стан Фазана:

- Медичний стан залишається серйозним, але стабільним
- Лікарі прооперували і забрали 14 кусочків шрапнелю; залишилися 15 штук шрапнелю в спині, шиї, руках, та ногах
- Один осколок залишається в голові. Ця частина увійшла в лоб, пройшла між частками мозку і зупинилася при задні частині черепа
- В лікарні Мечникова в Дніпрі лікарі зробили все що можуть, а тепер зосередженні зберігти стабільний стан Фазана
- Його треба перевезти до Києва для подальших операцій, а далі в Європу для додаткових процедур та тривалої реабілітації
- Страждає від сильних болів голови і тільки може терпіти шепіт; відкривати очі може тільки на кілька хвилин в день через біль
- Вагітна дружина Фазана переїхала в Дніпро щоб бути біля нього
- Недавно Фазан знайшов апетит та вперше поїв
- Проте, Фазан залишається в гарному настрої і відчувається сильним, а з нашою допомогою він зможе видужати

Слава Україні! Героям слава!
