"Raphael" has been found!
Recall that on March 15, in Uzhgorod, near the Holy Cross Greek Catholic Cathedral there was the consecration of the SUV, which had been purchased for Transcarpathian soldiers for the money raised by parishioners.
Last weekend it was reported that the car with the number plate "Raphael" had disappeared. This was reported in the social networks by Lyudmyla Bandurchak. This information outraged the religious community of Transcarpathia.
Today the volunteer reported that "Raphael" had been found!
"Friends! Due to public outcry, the jeep "Raphael" donated by the Greek Catholic community has been found. We were looking for it among medics, and it turned out that it is simply performing other functions. Currently, it is in the car hospital with a civilian trauma! :) Thanks to all who contributed to the search. It's not our fault, it's just that the times are troubled" - Lyudmyla says.
She published the letter of the man who had responded and provided information about the fate of the jeep.
"Dear Lyudmyla and network users, I am Lieutenant of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Taras Snitsarenko, who received this car from the clergy of the region. After delivery, the car indeed was with the 15th battalion, because my unit is also based there. On May 10, the unit left for the East, as well as most of our brigade, the car with the famous name "Raphael" went there too, and I told that to Father Vladislav, who initiated the purchase of the car. In the city of Shepetivka, soldiers of the unit had the vehicle repaired at their own expense (replaced oil, filters, belts, and other parts), after which it arrived to the destination. Currently, the car is in unserviceable condition at the place of deployment of the unit (of course, I can not disclose the name and location of the unit). The fault is that the very structure of the car is so rotten that its operation is impossible. I can not provide photos of the vehicle, because Internet connection is not very good there. If you have any questions about the car, please call me personally, as the person who received it. My number 0505493775. Yours faithfully, Snitsarenko Taras" - the statement reads.
