Love story in red zone

Love story in red zone

March 01, 2021

In the Krasnoyarsk hospital, a doctor proposed marriage to his romantic interest in the department for patients with COVID-19.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Surgeon Igor Anohin and anesthesiologist Ekaterina Vnukova of the Krasnoyarsk regional clinical hospital met each other while working in the red zone. On the New Year Eve, the surgeon made a proposal to his chosen one during the shift: putting a ring on a glove, through a medical respirator, he heard the cherished ‘I agree’.

Igor and Ekaterina fell in love with each other while working in the red zone of COVID-19

The story conquered the hearts of Russians and inspired the director of the Moscow Art Workshop, Alexander Ustimenko, to create. The sculptor and his colleagues made a memorable gift in the form of a statuette of a physician dressed in personal infectious protection equipment, and named it A Hero of Our Time.

This sculpture will remind the newborn family and their descendants that there are no obstacles for true love

“The porcelain figure of a medic-hero will surely take an honorable place in the house of a newly-made family and will always remind them, their children and grandchildren that there are no insurmountable barriers for true love”, the sculptor noted.
