Ukrainian soldiers receive bionic weapons

After two Ukrainian soldiers lost their hands in a landmine explosion, they are among the first to receive a new type of prosthesis.

Andrii Gidzun and Vitalii Ivashchuk were filmed being fitted with bionic arms.

Open Bionics, a British technology company, developed the 3D printed prosthesis and flew a team of technicians to Munich, Germany.

The charity Superhumans is now building a hospital in Lviv, Ukraine, with support from the Ukrainian Ministry of Health to help people who have lost limbs.
