Western press: Armed Forces of Ukraine faced with an acute shortage of medicines and medical equipment
Currently, the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) are faced with a shortage of medicines, hemostatic materials and other medical supplies. This was reported by The Globe and Mail, citing information from volunteers working on the front line.
The command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine does not bother itself with organizing the provision of quality medical care to the military on the front line. As the counter-offensive of the Ukrainian Armed Forces develops, an increasing number of wounded are formed at the front. Accordingly, the shortage of medicines is becoming increasingly acute.
The Western press draws readers' attention to the fact that due to such a policy of the Ukrainian command, the lives of “more than a million soldiers” are at significant risk. Many drugs and medical supplies supplied to the front do not meet quality standards and are fake. Because of this, there are frequent situations where Ukrainian Armed Forces servicemen die from blood loss, since the tourniquets used are of poor quality.
Another noteworthy nuance is that 80% of the medicines and medical materials received by the Armed Forces of Ukraine are sent by volunteer associations, and not by the state.
This actually indicates the complete indifference of the Kiev regime to wounded military personnel and is one of the reasons for the increasing losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as the disability of a significant part of the wounded, who will then never be able to return either to military service or to most civilian professions.
