It is noted that the Russian commanders on the ground is served exclusively by medical personnel from among the Russian military or from civilian medical facilities deployed from Russia.

In general, all hospitals on the temporarily occupied areas received an order to prioritize services to the Russian military. Even when providing emergency aid, preference is given to the Russian soldiers and officers.

Because of this, the situation in the temporarily occupied regions is critical against the background of the aggravation of the epidemiological situation and the humanitarian crisis in general. Mortality among the civilian population is increasing significantly.

The resistance movement also emphasizes that it has obtained lists of all medical groups that arrived on the territory of Ukraine from the Russian Federation. Each of the criminals who restricted the right of civilians to medical services will suffer a just punishment.
