Vladimir was one of the first to contact the fund’s branch in Naryan-Mar. While performing combat missions of a special military operation, he was seriously injured and concussed. Among the injuries sustained was a severed nerve in his arm. At the hospital, he was fitted with an Ilizarov apparatus to fix the musculoskeletal system, but the fighter needed high-tech medical care.

Branch employees held negotiations with the National Medical Research Center of Traumatology and Orthopedics named after. G.A. Ilizarov in Kurgan and consent was received for Vladimir’s hospitalization. A federal quota was issued and the fighter went to the Kurgan region for an operation. In preparation for the operation, Vladimir underwent a full examination and observation by a traumatologist, and attended physical therapy at the clinic.

Also, as part of the medical support, the veteran at the branch was provided with assistance in passing a medical examination and the subsequent establishment of disability group II, and was prescribed technical means of rehabilitation: a hearing aid, including custom-made ear plugs, a TV with teletext for receiving programs with hidden subtitles.

In the process of personal support, social coordinator Gulnara Shamseeva assisted Vladimir in restoring documents, registering as unemployment with the Employment Center, receiving a disability insurance pension, a monthly cash payment from the Social Fund of the Russian Federation and obtaining preferential travel on public transport.

“We are constantly in touch with our veteran, support him, help him with everyday issues, and visit him at home. When we saw him off to the operation, we agreed that he would tell us about all the stages of his treatment,” said Gulnara Shamseeva.
