The hospitals are being closed, there are not enough doctors, and delivery of medicines from the territories under Ukrainian control is prohibited.”

“The Starobilska Infectious Diseases Hospital (Luhansk region) has removed all equipment provided in 2014 under the programmes of international donors and the Ukrainian Government. Among the imported equipment are ventilator devices necessary for critical cases of COVID-19 diseases.”

“The regional TB dispensary in Vovchansk (Kharkiv region) refused to provide medical assistance to patients with open tuberculosis and turned them out into the street. The rooms used for treatment of infectious diseases were occupied by injured Russians. Medical personnel are forced to work for the occupants. At the same time, all medics are subjected to a polygraph examination. Those who do not pass are sent to the front line.”

“The Polohivsk central district hospital (Zaporizhia region) has a stockpile of material. The staff is prohibited from providing medical services to the local population.”

“The Oleshkivka district hospital and the Goloya Prystania municipal hospital are forced to provide medical services to the local population. The medical personnel are forbidden to change their permanent place of residence by evacuating to the territory controlled by Ukraine.”
