Since war began, Russian troops fired on 58 ambulances, killing six medics

Since the beginning of the large-scale invasion, Russian invaders fired on 58 ambulances and killed six medics in Ukraine.

Health Minister Viktor Liashko wrote this on Facebook, Ukrinform reports.

"The war has changed the lives of each of us. The war changed everything: plans, priorities, opinions. I never thought we would get bulletproof vests for medical workers. However, due to the actions of terrorists from Russia, who have already fired on 58 ambulances and killed six of our colleagues, we are forced to do the same,” he said.

Liashko said that today he handed over the first batch of bulletproof vests to paramedics, who, despite everything, are rescuing Ukrainians on the border with the areas of active hostilities.

As reported, on February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the beginning of a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops have been shelling and destroying key infrastructure facilities, conducting massive shelling of residential areas of Ukrainian cities and villages using artillery, multiple rocket launchers and ballistic missiles.
