“Ruslan is a very kind person. He has friends in the United States, also Ukrainians who have long moved. He lived in California, and this happened to him far from home when he was on a flight. Therefore, he was hospitalized in another state, and then he was transferred by helicopter to another hospital in Nebraska, because he was in very poor condition, but the hospital was 1000 kilometers from the house where friends live. Therefore, he is now in the hospital all alone, “the cousin explained.

Ruslan’s mother, Zhanna Gonchar, said that she spoke with a doctor who treats her son in the United States and with the police department and the sheriff, where the tragedy occurred. According to the woman, the company that Ruslan worked for will not be liable for the incident and will not help in any way financially with the treatment, which requires at least 300 thousand dollars.
She noted that in the USA, the pastor of the church is engaged in the treatment of her son, who collects money for treatment, and the doctors assured the woman that they will do everything possible to save Ruslan.
