At one of the state-owned enterprises in Dnipro, where a hospital for the rehabilitation of people with amputations operates, Ukrainian defenders have been mastering artificial prostheses for more than three months in a row thanks to additional sports activities. Once a week, they practice Nordic walking with a volunteer instructor.

Yevhenii Tarantsov, an instructor of the Ukrainian Nordic Walking Federation, suggested conducting such walking classes. Under his supervision, wounded fighters, using special sticks, evenly load themselves and learn to keep their balance better. After classes, they play football with pleasure. In this hospital, crippled defenders are recuperating for several months. The acquired skills allow Ukrainian defenders to restore motor function as quickly as possible. After all, some of them after prosthetics want to return to the front to their comrades as soon as possible.
