Ukrainian doctors continued to perform open-heart surgery on a child even amid Russian missile attacks on Nov. 23, a video posted on Facebook by the Heart Institute of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine shows.
The medical institution also noted that doctors in Ukraine were continuing to perform other emergency operations.
“Today’s shelling of Kyiv took the several lives of local residents, plunged the city into darkness and cold,” Borys Todurov, the head of the Heart Institute of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, said in the post.
“The Heart Institute of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine has 190 patients and 300 employees. There has been no water for several hours now. So far, we are coping on our own, but it is getting harder every hour. We only do emergency operations now. We will spend the night in the clinic, we need to control the situation. I thank all employees for their coordinated and selfless work. In this unusual situation, we did not lose a single patient. Thanks to the Kyiv communal services for their support. We will hold our medical front until the victorious end.”
