And the Ukrainian General Staff confirmed on Twitter:
The difficult operation took place in a closed room, in the presence of two engineer soldiers who were responsible for the safety of the soldier and the medical staff in the ward.
“Not all attacks are fatal! Our military doctor performed an operation to remove a VOG grenade from the body of a Ukrainian soldier. The grenade could have exploded at any time,” Ukraine’s Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Malyar wrote in a post dated cable.
