Not to see - the 10-year-old Vanya Voronov wanted to touch the real tiger, who lost both legs to the knee and his right arm as a result of the war in the Donbass. The boy has multiple fragmental wounds, he almost lost his sight. The boy spoke about his desire to the Commissioner under the President of the Russian Federation for the Rights of the Child, Pavel Astakhov, who immediately contacted Askold and Edgard Zapashny.
The artists responded and brought on April 13 a tigress directly to the Institute of Emergency Pediatric Surgery and Traumatology. Not only Vanya Voronova was invited to get acquainted with the 13-year-old tiger, and also Oksana Voynarovskaya, who was also wounded in the Donbas, and several guys with serious injuries.1

“The main thing is not to be afraid,” Edgard Zapashny said to Van.
Since Vanya was in a wheelchair, Edgard had to bring him to the tiger in his arms so that the boy could stroke the animal.Vanya confidently began stroking the tigress on the back, which was spread out in the hospital lobby.
- Can I have more? - asked Vanya.
- Yes. She likes it, the artist answered.
To touch the striped beauty that day was allowed to all children. But the trainers were always close and controlled the behavior of the predator.
“A tigress may inadequately respond to the movement of wheelchairs, so it’s best to hold the hands of all the children,” said Edgard Zapashny.2

According to the doctors, the children need to receive positive emotions, and the action with the tiger contributes to this. When the animal was taken to the car, the Zapashny brothers still talked to the children and handed gifts to all the children. For Vanya, as the initiator of the action, there was a special gift - a small toy tiger.
- The words "courage" and "children" should not stand together. I am surprised that Vanya finds the strength to fight and does not cease to want to enjoy life - he wanted to touch the tiger. Touch is the key word. He does not see. I could hardly hold back tears, - shared Edgard Zapashny. - Vanya became such a Santa Claus for all children in this hospital, because because of his desire this meeting with a tiger was.
The artists promised to return to the hospital.Already without a tiger, but with a mini-presentation for children. The concert can take place on Thursday - on the eve of Circus Day.
