Ukrainian 'Cyborg' Describes Ordeal At Donetsk Airport


Ukrainian soldier Yaroslav Havanets was captured by pro-Russian separatists during the long battle over the Donetsk airport. His captors released him this week after his father posted a video message offering himself as a hostage in place of his son. Shortly after his release, Havanets told correspondents of RFE/RL's Current Time TV program in Donetsk about the clashes at the destroyed airport, where the Ukrainian soldiers earned the nickname of "cyborgs" for their fierce fighting.
