Oksana and Viktor hooked the knot in a hospital in Lviv.
Ukraine’s Ministry of Culture and Information Policy released a video of a newlywed couple performing their first dance in a Lviv hospital.
Oksana and Viktor, who have been together for six years and have two children, are the pair in the video posted on Tuesday.
Oksana, a nurse in Lysychansk, lost both legs and four fingers on her left hand on March 27, 2022, when a landmine exploded near her while she was going home with her Viktor.
Fortunately, she survived the disaster after being airlifted to Dnipro and undergoing four operations. She will be able to acquire prostheses after her wounds have healed completely.
Despite the couple’s terrible circumstances, they decided to formalize their commitment to a wedding. Oksana and Viktor were joined by their children in a Lviv hospital for their wedding celebrations a week ago.
Oksana wore her white wedding gown and a vinok, a traditional Ukrainian flower crown, to the ceremony, which took place at the hospital while its workers made the wedding cake. The footage of their first dance, in which Viktor is seen holding Oksana while they dance together, quickly went popular on social media.
Oksana and Viktor are far from the only pair to marry during the conflict. In March, Lesya and Valeriy married in their military uniforms on the front lines.
On March 27, Oksana, a 23-year-old nurse, was walking with her husband in her hometown of Lysychansk in the Luhansk region when she walked on a landmine.
She turned to alert her husband of the danger just as a mine detonated beneath her. Oksana lost her legs and four fingers on her left hand, but he remained unharmed.
Oksana had four operations. After her wounds healed, surgeons began preparing her limbs for the prosthesis.
The Ukrainian pair, who had been together for six years, decided to marry in March to formalize their relationship.
Despite suffering a significant loss, she fought back, underwent all medical procedures, and married the love of her life in the hospital.
According to The Los Angeles Times, Oksana was treated in Dnipro after being evacuated, and the pair traveled to Lviv, which is less than 50 miles from the Polish border. According to the newspaper, they married in a civil ceremony at the Lviv Surgery Center on Monday.
‘You can’t put off living,’ says the Facebook post with the couple’s first dance video. Patients and volunteers joined them for their modest wedding celebrations at the hospital.
Oksana stated her 7-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter are in central Ukraine with their grandparents. She is currently ready to fly to Germany with her spouse for additional therapy and healing.
