From The Kyiv Post FB page

ENG: Kyiv Post’s Oleksandra Klitina accidentally met the subject of today’s interview in a beauty Salon., saying “I immediately noticed a beautiful, fragile girl in a military uniform with a plastered arm The hairdresser asked her if the color of her hair was too bright because the enemy would notice it.” But she casually replied that she’d wear camouflage in the trench and that everything would be fine. In between manicures and highlights, she fights on the front lines – swapping handbags for handguns, and makeup for a medic kit.
Her name is Iryna – and though she may be short, her story is gigantic.

UA: Днями наша журналістка Олександра Клітіна випадково зустріла героїню сьогоднішнього інтерв’ю.
«Побачила Ірину у салоні краси – одразу помітила красиву тендітну дівчину у воєнному вбранні із загіпсованою рукою. Ірина закінчувала робити манікюр і йшла на зачіску. Я спитала у майстра – Що це за дівчина? Мені пояснили, що це воєнна, служить на передовій тому просила такий манікюр, щоб як мінімум три тижні протримався. А перукар її питала – чи не сильно яскравий колір волосся, бо ж ворог може помітити – Ірина відповіла що одіне на голову камуфляж в окопі та все буде прекрасно.
Це ж на скільки незламний дух, що з пораненням вона вже планує повернення на переводу та ще й у всій красі.»

Two lovely women. Full interview here:

“Small women serving in the army was not expected”- interview with combat medic Iryna.


  1. [Iryna] The needs at the front are, first of all, tourniquets, bandages, and hemostatic agents. The situation is such that a lot of aid goes through volunteers in the main.

    >Very much so Ukrainians have been very blessed with having such tools to treat front-line wounds but they need more.. Supplies in this area are crucial to the medics. Quick clot bandages, blood, medicines, and transportation to get to sites and evac can make a huge difference to survivability. Praise God for so many volunteers and donations helping make that happen.

    Iryna was even hit with missile fragments in her hand and leg. She refused to be hospitalized and returned back to the front. She fractured her arm when thier car ran into some wreckage and overturned several times. God bless her and give her broken arm a quick recovery, as well as provide her a new and much better vehicle that she may continue her calling.
