Military surgeon killed near Debaltseve while rescuing wounded soldiers

Hundreds of Chernivtsi citizens went to the funeral of Vladislav Trepko, 28, a military surgeon who died February 12th near Debaltseve. His former colleagues remembered him as a talented physician and a kind person. Vladislav served in the Ukrainian Army since March 2014 and planned to return home in a few weeks. Recently he shortly visited his family but came back to the front line before the end of his scheduled leave because he knew his comrades are in a great need of medical help.
“His medical unit was involved into the rescue of wounded soldiers from Debaltsevo. There was a field hospital near Logvinovo. Vladislav made several trips that day, and when he was coming to help another wounded soldier, he got under the fire and he was killed” , the Chernivtsi Regional Military Commissioner said.
