Inside hospitals treating head injuries in Ukraine
Mykhaylo Bielov, 31, a soldier in the Ukrainian National Guard, was defending the eastern town of Bakhmut on December 31, 2022, when a Russian grenade exploded above his head.

“I remember a white light and how it went out,” he said. “I remember putting out the fire in my uniform and spitting out my tooth.”

Emergency surgery at Mechnikov Hospital saved his life. He spent a month in a coma. His recovery will take years.
