"In an effort to continue its armed aggression, the Russian occupation army sustains significant personnel losses every day. Earlier, we reported that hospitals are overflowing in the temporarily occupied settlements in Donetsk Oblast.

This trend continues. One of the hospitals in the city of Horlivka has recently received an order to increase the number of hospital beds available for wounded invaders."
