Intercity bus driver. Boromlia, Sumy region
At the beginning of March 2022, the village of Boromlia was under occupation. The Okhrimenko household is located in the center of Boromlia, so the Russian military set up their headquarters in the house’s garden and installed a tripwire in the house. On March 16, Andrii Okhrimenko was informed that his house had been blown up. Andrii ran to see what happened; no one saw him again. According to Andrii’s wife, the Russians found photos of military equipment on his phone and promised to release him in a couple of days. However, Andrii is still in captivity, and his two children, 19-year-old Andriy and 3-year-old Sasha, are waiting for him to return home. Another hostage reported that the Russian military transported Andriy to the Belgorod region in Russia. Although he was allegedly being prepared for an exchange, according to the Red Cross, Andrii currently remains in the territory of the Russian Federation.
