Heartwarming footage has emerged of a Ukrainian nurse enjoying her first dance at her wedding in a Lviv hospital after she lost both of her legs in a Russian mine explosion.

Oksana, 23, was walking alongside her husband Viktor in their home town of Lysychansk in the Russian-occupied Luhansk region on March 27 when she stepped on a mine.

The couple were returning home 'along a familiar path', according to the Lviv medical association, when Oksana took one fateful step and was caught in a horrific blast just a split second later.

Viktor was not injured, but Oksana had both of her legs and four fingers on her left hand blown away in the explosion.

Miraculously, the young nurse survived, and after four operations to stabilise her injuries was evacuated west towards the city of Dnipro, before arriving in Lviv by train four days ago to be fitted with prosthetics.

Upon arriving in Lviv, the pair, who have two children, decided to tie the knot.

The beautiful footage, captured by a nurse, showed Viktor holding Oksana aloft in a warm embrace as the couple twirled gently around the hospital room to the applause of happy onlookers.
