The large number of wounded in units of the Russian Armed Forces, which are involved in hostilities in Ukraine, led to the overflow of military hospitals on the territory of the Russian Federation. It turned out that their capacity was not designed for such a flow of patients. This makes it impossible to provide quality medical care.
The leadership of the occupying country also decided to mobilize (including in Moscow) medical personnel. This applies to specialists of almost all medical specialties, however, the main attention is paid to surgical personnel. These events occur without wide publicity in the mass media and the public.
In the future, mobilized doctors are planned to be sent to the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. In particular, in Mariupol, Luhansk, Donetsk. Non-surgical medical personnel are planned to be “optimized” for work in front-line areas: therapists – as surgeon assistants, pediatricians – as military paramedics, etc.
At the same time, the so-called “head of the health care department of Berdyansk”, collaborator and traitor Mykola Miroshnychenko, “inspected” the service apartments of medical workers of the enterprise “Berdyansk Territorial Medical Association”. According to his order, the abandoned apartments of doctors will be redistributed among the medical personnel who agreed to cooperate with the occupiers.
Also, in some settlements in the temporarily occupied territories of the Donetsk region, the occupiers place buses equipped with so-called “mobile medical clinics”. It is claimed that their task is to receive patients from among local residents. However, when examined in such “points” patients are forced to donate blood for the needs of “defenders of the DPR army and Russian servicemen fighting in Ukraine.”
