Invading Russian forces have already brought thousands of wounded soldiers to the occupied town of Melitopol and other settlements in Zaporizhzhya Oblast, Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov said on Ukrainian national television on Dec. 2.

“They turned all the medical facilities in Tokmak, Molochansk, Vesele, and Mykhailivka into Rashist (Russian fascist) hospitals,” he said.

“The Russians are trying to treat their wounded there, who already number in the thousands.”

According to Fedorov, the Russians “are transporting those wounded in trucks and treat them as waste.”

The mayor added the invaders had turned the Strohanivka resort village on the Azov Sea coast, where chronic psoriasis patients were treated, into barracks and torture chambers this week.

Earlier, Ukraine’s General Staff also reported that a convoy of trucks and buses with wounded invaders was recorded moving toward Russian-occupied Melitopol on Nov. 28-29.
