Ukraine War: A thick tarpaulin has been laid on the window of the hospital, so that it is not easily visible from the night sky, which increases the risk of it becoming a target of the Russian army. But tarpaulins also serve to protect people from flying glass during bombings. The hospital remains in darkness for most of the day. There is a conversation between the desk lamps and the X-rays of the patients make this place look like a ghostly place.
russia ukraine war More than two months after the (Russia Ukraine War), Dr. Farad Ali Shakh has spent most of his day treating the wounds of Ukrainian soldiers and civilians. He also treats wounded Russian soldiers, but without any desire. But these Russian soldiers can be used in the exchange of prisoners in the future. This young doctor said, “He almost lives in the military hospital in the large city of Zaporizhzhya in southern Ukraine, which is a few kilometers from the battlefield.” The sound of shelling can be heard here at night. Because Russia has largely retreated from northern Ukraine so that it can exert its power on the Donbass region of the east and southern Ukraine. This industrial city of Zaporizhzhya has become a haven for those who want to flee violence or are wounded in battle.
Ali-Shakh says that he works for about 20 hours every day, which means operating about 20 patients one after the other. Since February 24, when Russia invaded Ukraine, the hospital window has been covered with thick tarpaulin so that it is not easily visible from the night sky, increasing the risk of it becoming a target of Russian military.

But tarpaulins also serve to protect people from flying glass during bombings. Last week there was a Russian attack on Zaporizhzhya. This means that the hospital remains in the dark for most of the day. There is a conversation between the desk lamps and the X-rays of the patients make this place look like a ghostly place.
In this slow light, even the photos on the mobile are not clearly visible in the doctors. In one photo there is a photo of a completely torn leg with only a piece of skin glued to it.
Ali-Shakh says, “It’s something that appears very frequently here.” Ali-Shakh said, “First we connected the blood vessels and then the skin was re-glued.”
In another picture, the patient’s hand was almost cut in two, the doctor said, adding that it was also saved.
Asked about the emotional impact of constantly dealing with such horrific injuries, he says, “We have learned to deal with such injuries, we are doing a difficult job here but we are helping our country.”
treatment of russian soldiers
After this he gave startling information, “We also treat Russian soldiers. But maybe we shouldn’t. Maybe we should leave them like that.”
The young doctor admitted that when it comes to treating enemy soldiers, there is not much motivation.”
But he adds, “But if you help them recover, you can replace them with Ukrainian soldiers who are imprisoned by Russian soldiers.”
Clothing boxes and medical supplies throughout the hospital are found to detect emergencies in the hospital.
These limited resources also indicate that doctors will have to treat these “animals” as well, says Major Viktor Pyssanko, who runs this hospital.
Russian soldiers, he says, are thoughtless youths who have been victims of propaganda. He says that he wants to liberate Ukraine but he also wants to kill as many Ukrainians as possible. ,
Despite this, Sayanko said, the hospital is trying to save as many soldiers as possible, so that its soldiers can be saved in return for them.
Recently, there was a prisoner exchange on Friday, when 41 Ukrainians, 28 soldiers and 13 civilians were released. These include 11 women and a religious leader. While Ukraine did not say how many Russian soldiers were given back to Russia.
