A Ukrainian mother lost her unborn child, a hand and a foot in a rocket blast.

Kateryna Herman was seriously injured when Russian troops shelled her home in Lyman, Donetsk, on May 1.

The 35-year-old, who was 12 weeks pregnant, was carried by her husband Konstantin to rescue workers who took her to the hospital in Sloviansk.

She lost a lot of blood and medics had to amputate part of one of her arms and legs.

Kateryna’s remaining hand was also badly injured – and she had been hit by shrapnel in her baby bump.

Doctors struggled to save her unborn child, but nothing could be done.

The patient was then transferred between different hospitals, first to Dnipro, then to Kyiv, then to Lviv.

From there it finally went to Sweden, where she will receive prostheses and undergo rehabilitation.

But Kateryna dreams of returning to Ukraine as soon as possible so that she can take her six-year-old son Damir, who also survived the explosion, to school in the fall.

Zoriana Hasi, spokeswoman for the First Medical Chamber of Lviv, said: “The prognosis for Kateryna’s condition is positive.

“She was visited by a Danish prosthetist who gave a very optimistic prognosis about the prosthetic leg.

“Now the family is in Sweden, where they are being looked after by many specialists.”

The hospital said it did not know which unit or units of the Russian armed forces were behind the attack on the Herman family’s home.

Ms Hasi added: “Kateryna really wants to return to Ukraine as soon as possible to get her son Damir into first grade.

“However, they do not yet know exactly where they will return to.

“What the family wants most now is a good rehabilitation and a modern prosthesis so that Kateryna can walk, walk and even paint.”

The Herman family’s hometown was eventually taken by pro-Russian forces in the weeks following her injury.

The Donetsk People’s Republic claimed full control of Lyman on May 27.

Before the invasion, the city had over 20,000 inhabitants.
