Ukrainian injured in Maidan clashes dies in the Czech Republic


A fifty-three-year-old Ukrainian national who was critically injured during the clashes on Maidan square in February has died in the Czech Republic. Jurij Sydorchuk was transported to Prague in a coma along with a group of other Ukrainians in need of medical care. He never came out of the coma and in view of the serious brain damage he suffered doctors predicted that his chances of recovery were slim. According to the Ukrainian embassy members of his family have already arrived in the Czech Republic to repatriate his body. All expenses are being covered within the MEDEVAC humanitarian aid programme.
