Twenty-nine more Ukrainians evacuated for treatment to European hospitals

This week a total of 29 Ukrainians have been evacuated for treatment to European specialized hospitals.

The relevant statement was made by the Ukrainian Health Ministry, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Over the past week, we have managed to evacuate and transport 29 Ukrainians to Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands and Germany. We remind you that adults and children with combined injuries, burns, mine blast injuries and other serious illnesses are usually evacuated,” the report states.

This week the evacuation groups included civilians with oncology diseases from Lviv Region, Khmelnytskyi Region, Kyiv Region and other regions of Ukraine. All of them require continued specialized treatment. Also, patients with mine blast injuries received in enemy shelling were sent for treatment and further rehabilitation.

International partners, in cooperation with the emergency medical aid service of the Ukrainian Health Ministry, ensure that patients are transported from a hospital in the front line area through the Lviv medical hub to an airdrome in Poland, where their condition is stabilized. Then, air hospitals or special air transport services are used to carry Ukrainian patients for specialized treatment to EU countries.
