This was announced by medic's colleague Serhii Ryzhenko on his Facebook page, Censor.NET reports.
"Sad news from the medical battalion. Saving more than thousand wounded, he was not thinking about himself. He is called a man of war at Mechnikov hospital. Due to his natural impulsivity and ability to take quick decisions he was second to none. But it was not enough. He went to the front while on vacation. Today, rescuing a wounded soldier at the front end, under a mortar attack, Yurii Skrebets got a splinter in the neck. The irony of fate has him personally testing military medicine and medicine at Mechnikov hospital. We are looking forward to him, the ward is ready..." Ryzhenko wrote.
