EU to provide medical treatment for Ukrainians who suffered from Russia’s war

Ukraine has evacuated 19 of its citizens for specialized treatment and rehabilitation abroad, the Ministry of Health said.

“Since the beginning of the full-scale war, the Ministry of Health, in cooperation with the European Commission and other international partners has continued to organize evacuation for Ukrainian citizens who have suffered from the war and require medical treatment and rehabilitation. This week, 19 Ukrainians were evacuated,” the ministry informed.

Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, and Norway will treat 18 adult patients who sustained mine-explosion injuries or have oncological diseases from Kyiv and Kropyvnytskyi, and Switzerland will provide medical assistance to a child.

Earlier, the Ukrainian Embassy evacuated 362 Ukrainian citizens, including a significant number of women and 86 children from Tel Aviv over the span of two days amid the escalating Israel-Palestine war.
