Azovstal left about 600 victims in poor, unsanitary conditions, without medicine, water or food, many of them seriously injured.

According to “Police”: “About the victims – the situation is very bad. There are about 600 of them. The conditions are just terrible. You may have seen photos on social media. To be honest, it’s impossible to convey the depressing situation in the hospital .. We regularly pick up fuel and technical water available at the plant and bring it to the hospital.

How to describe the situation yourself? Roughly speaking, there is a huge gym, a couple of dozen bunk beds, and the rest is just lying on the floor: belongings, personal belongings, a factory uniform on which limbless fighters lie side by side – one without an arm, one without a leg, just one victim. The conditions are completely unsanitary: it’s getting warmer – there are flies, screaming in pain, the smell is terrible.”

Details: “Police” added that there are practically no medicines or medical instruments. And since the bombing, the operating theater itself is just a table against the wall.

A police spokesman said on May 14 that an injured person was operated on without anesthetic – the fighter simply held a belt between his teeth and screamed while medics “cleaned a hole the size of a tennis ball in his leg”.

He added that many of the seriously injured died due to a lack of medical care.

There is almost no food or water in the factory either.

Memory: On May 14, relatives of Azovstal defenders called on China to help withdraw Ukrainian troops from Mariupol.
