“During this year, 106 of our colleagues, medical workers were killed, 33 of them at workplaces. Terrible numbers for a country in the heart of Europe in the 21st century. We remember everyone who gave their lives in this war,” reported the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.
In addition, during the year of the full-scale invasion, Russian soldiers destroyed a total of 174 medical facilities in Ukraine and seriously damaged other 1,106.
The medical infrastructure was most affected in the Donetsk, Luhansk, Kharkiv, Kherson and Mykolaiv regions of Ukraine.
“These figures are evidence of the deliberate daily terrorism of the Russians, which they perpetrate against Ukrainian doctors and medical system. Every bullet or projectile that hits a medical facility is a terror for Ukrainian doctors and patients. Today, a year after the beginning of the full-scale stage of the war, we record more than 1,200 damaged objects. If you divide this number by the number of days of the war, it turns out that Russia shells at least 3 medical facilities every day,” said the Health Minister of Ukraine Viktor Liashko.
