When war broke out, a maxillofacial surgeon turned a TV broadcast truck into an operating room for wounded soldiers.

For eight years, Dr. Miron Ugrin has been serving Ukrainian soldiers fighting against Russian aggressors at the front. When war broke out in eastern Ukraine, this maxillofacial surgeon turned a TV broadcast truck into an operating room, where he operates on wounded soldiers.
