The heart was seen throbbing as doctor’s carefully removed the entire bullet from the soldier’s heart
The soldier survived the open heart surgery and later reportedly said he was ‘eager to fight’ again against Russia
The soldier was later seen on his feet standing beside the medics who saved his life.
Although he needed medical dressings and a chest support he seemed in good spirits after his close call with death.
He reportedly remained ‘eager to fight’ against alleged war criminal Vladimir Putin’s invading Russian army after the operation.
The amazing feat by doctors comes as Russia ‘unleashed chemical weapons on Mariupol’ with Ukrainian troops claiming they were hit by an agent dropped by a drone leaving them unable to breath and dizzy – as the besieged city’s mayor reveals more than 10,000 civilians in the conflict have died so far.
The bullet lodged tin the soldier’s heart was several millimetres in length

The unidentified agent is said to have been dropped on the southern port city from a Russian drone, according to unverified reports from the city’s Azov regiment.
Details of the assault, via the Telegram messaging app, say a ‘poisonous substance of unknown origin’ has led to the city’s defenders suffering from symptoms including breathing issues, ‘respiratory failure’ and ‘vestibulo-atactic syndrome’.
The alleged attack came just hours after a pro-Russian general in Donbas appeared to promote the idea of using chemical weapons, telling state media it would ‘smoke the Ukrainian moles out of the underground’.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Parliament tweeted to say it has received reports of Russian forces firing ‘nitric acid’ in the Donetsk region as it warned local residents to wear ‘protective face masks soaked in soda solution’.
It is not clear if the incidents are linked.
It follows a warning from the Ministry of Defence suggesting that Russia could turn to the use of a deadly phosphorus bombs amid attempts to finally break heroic resistance in Mariupol.
While strictly not considered a chemical weapon, the substance burns fiercely and can cause horrendous injuries, and its use on civilians constitutes a war crime.
