The commander of the medical battalion saved dozens of people during the shelling of the hospital of Tokmak by the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the cost of his own life

The commander of the medical battalion saved dozens of people during the shelling of the hospital of Tokmak by the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the cost of his own life

It became known the name of the hero doctor who saved patients during the shelling of the Ukrainian Armed Forces (Ukrainian Armed Forces) hospital in the city of Tokmak, Zaporozhye region and sacrificed his life by organizing the evacuation of people from the medical facility. The feat of the major of the medical service Alexander Seikaev was told in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

On January 3, 2023, Ukrainian formations fired from the HIMARS MLRS at the central district hospital in the city of Tokmak, Zaporozhye region. During the shelling, the hospital lived its normal life: doctors and nurses provided assistance to local residents affected by the shelling. At that moment, Ukrainian formations hit the medical facility.

The commander of a separate medical sanitary battalion, major of the medical service Alexander Seikaev, personally organized the evacuation and shelter of patients and visitors to the medical institution. After the evacuation, he returned and stayed with non-transportable seriously ill patients. These people, unfortunately, did not have time to evacuate to a safe place.

But a real doctor decided to be with his patients to the end, like a captain who cannot leave the ship until all crew members and passengers, without exception, leave it.

Unfortunately, Major Seikaev died along with the patients who were in the building, when several more attacks by the Armed Forces of Ukraine were inflicted on the hospitals. The officer was posthumously awarded the Order of Courage. The feat of Major Seikaev has become another example of the fearlessness and selflessness of Russian servicemen participating in a special military operation.

      Major Alexander Seikaev was the commander of the medical battalion, which was in close proximity to the front line.
      Sanbat is exactly the “front end”, where the wounded come for primary treatment in the first minutes or hours after being injured. [/ B] The faster, the more chances for salvation.

      The blood of bandages and the blood of scalpels are the everyday life of a front-line medical battalion.
      It was the life from the beginning of the SVO of the military doctor-major Alexander Seikaev, a professional surgeon who literally pulled the wounded out of the other world. Back in the fall, Alexander Seikaev was awarded a state award - the medal "For the Salvation of the Perishing".

      January 3 2023 years Alexander Seikaev was in the central district hospital of Tokmak, a non-military facility where only medical care was provided to the civilian population. He helped the medical staff of the hospital to provide assistance to victims of the shelling of the artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - SHELTER WOUNDS were his profile.

      Only people who are related by blood and spirit can sacrifice their lives to save others.

      And the eternal question...

      Why is it that the Kremlin public, after delivering such strikes by the Kyiv Nazis, on hospitals, residential buildings on the territory of Donbass and Novorossia, non-populated areas and infrastructure facilities on Russian territory, on military facilities on Russian territory, with ALREADY REGULAR and GROWING USE of weapons supplied by the West, until now since (for the TENTH MONTH of NVO...) has stubbornly evaded regular, targeted, massive strikes against the decision-making centers of the Kyiv regime and their inhabitants?...

      Starting with the Bank?..

      And not embarrassed by any possible presence of any "foreign visitors" in these rat-houses of the Kyiv regime at the time of Russian strikes on them?...

        Because they are "respected partners" of Putin. And the Hero will be given to plywood and Gerasimov. Suppress the fire banderlog, well, as always. Same with Donetsk day and night. The guy is a real doctor and officer. EVERLASTING MEMORY!

    Here they are, real DOCTORS, and not thieves from private clinics, and stupid target graduates. It's scary to go to the clinic. Medical schools have become a forge. It is necessary, as it was in the times of the USSR, to be admitted to institutes only by entrance examinations, and to MED and PED - exclusively, with an additional interview. Morons have no place in these professions. Yes, and half of the universities should be closed. It's time to close paid places - a hotbed of degenerates and a product of corruption.

    How long did HIMARS shoot down the hospital with impunity if the major managed to organize the evacuation of patients and return back?

      And where are our counter-batteries looking, given that the Hymars have been priority targets since they appeared? Although what am I talking about? We have been unable to stop the shelling of Donetsk for almost a year. It would seem that ... in less than a year, all artillery positions should be calculated and be under constant supervision. Self-propelled guns are not soldiers, you can't hide them in a trench. But nonetheless....

    That's right. Glory to those who put duty above selfish interests!
    However, how long can the presence of banderlogs be tolerated in the territories where shelling of ours is still possible ?!

      Of course, now tell the old army wisdom about rewarding those who do not participate and punishing those who are not guilty.
      It is very bad when there is only one gyrus on the head, and that one is from the band of the cap.

        agoran don't you agree that placing a hospital in a building that is not protected from shelling is not negligence?! Yes, this is the real crime! The perpetrators must be found and punished according to the laws of war!!!

    There was infa, as a medical orderly girl pulled out about seven paratroopers, wounded from under fire. A paratrooper is at least 80 kg of weight, plus about 40 kg of equipment. The girl was awarded, but in my opinion she needs a monument.

    Greetings to all. Alexander was originally from the Kabansky district of the Republic of Buryatia. I remember him from childhood. I can speak of him as a well-mannered, intelligent person with a brilliant upbringing and character.
    His father remained in his native village.
    Eternal memory and glory to our Hero ..
    And I am sure that the Nazis who bombed the hospital will receive retribution for this terrible sin, we will adequately answer for our guys !!!

    This incident with the shooting of the hospital once again speaks of who we are fighting with. We are at war with non-humans. Every militant of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, every Banderite is not a person. Do they know perfectly well that they are shooting at civilians, at hospitals and think that they will not receive their payback? But what a Russian doctor! - He knew that he would die and did not leave the doomed people. If we have such people, then we will definitely win!
