ROSTOV-ON-DON, July 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine has asked Russia to admit another wounded Ukrainian soldier to a Russian hospital, spokesman for Russia’s regional Border Guard Service branch Vasily Malayev said on Thursday.

The Ukrainian serviceman who is presumably in a grave condition will be taken to a hospital in the Rostov Region, which borders on east Ukraine’s Donetsk Region, the spokesman said.

“The Ukrainian side has again asked for assistance to a wounded serviceman. He is being transported to the Gukovo checkpoint where the transfer procedure will take place,” Malayev said.

Together with him, a total of five Ukrainian National Guard servicemen wounded in battles with east Ukraine’s self-defense fighters will be staying in Russian hospitals.

Earlier on Thursday, 18 Ukrainian servicemen came back to Ukraine after receiving medical treatment in southern Russia.

Russia provides assistance proceeding from the norms of the January 22, 1993 Minsk Convention on Legal Aid and the Consular Convention signed between Russia and Ukraine on January 15, 1993.
