“During the hostilities since February 24, Russian troops have destroyed 570 healthcare facilities. Completely destroyed 101 hospitals. What is this? This is stupidity. This is barbarism. This is the self-destruction of Russia as a state that at least someone in the world could look at as a cultural nation,” Zelensky said.
On World Nurses Day, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy celebrated nurses for their loyalty to their chosen cause and personal contribution to providing medical care to the population during Russia’s armed aggression against Ukraine.
