Quote: "The Russian aggressors have already completely destroyed 7 hospitals in Ukraine. We will have to build new hospitals in those cities. 104 health care facilities are damaged, but they can still be repaired, and some of them have already been repaired since the shelling. 34 ambulances have been fired on, leaving them unusable.

Six medical workers have been killed, twelve seriously wounded, and others have sustained minor injuries."

Details: He also noted that despite the losses, medical care is available in Ukraine, and health care facilities are operational. But for subjective and objective reasons, the situation has changed.

"The medical sphere has pivoted toward a wartime model. Everything is operating differently. Today, the delivery of medication is prioritised in favour of health care facilities at the front and those receiving the wounded and injured after the collapse of buildings," Lyashko added.
