Because of untimely aid, only one third of injured Ukrainian soldiers survive — expert

Approximately 25% of all survivors are disabled, Lugansk military expert Andrey Marochko said

LUGANSK, January 20. /TASS/. Two out of three soldiers injured in the zone of the special military operation succumb to their injuries in Ukrainian hospitals because they did not receive medical assistance in time, a Lugansk military expert told TASS on Friday.

"According to intercepted information, coming from Ukrainian military doctors, only one out of three injured servicemen survives. Approximately 25% of all survivors are disabled [for life]," said Andrey Marochko, a military expert and a retired officer of the Lugansk People’s Republic’s (LPR) People’s Militia.

He said that between January 16 and 20, around 1,500 injured servicemen were admitted to Ukrainian hospitals from the operative zone of the Second Army Corps of the Russian Armed Forces.

"The majority of patients died as a result of untimely medical aid, blood loss, unhygienic conditions, disrupted logistics and other negative factors," he added.
