SIEGE NIGHTMARE: Ukrainian Fighters Haunting Video On Agonies Of The Wounded

A Ukrainian fighter has described the nightmarish condition of wounded soldiers inside the besieged Azovstal steel plant.

In a shocking video, he tells of rotting wounds, no bandages and not even a drop of antiseptic.

The fighter – from the Azov Batallion – describes wounded soldiers suffering in agony without even basic medical necessities.

The footage was filmed at the Azovstal iron and steel plant in the under-siege Ukrainian city of Mariupol.

In the haunting video the fighter says: “The wounded, who are in extremely terrible conditions, in conditions of complete unsanitary, do not have antiseptics.

“The fighters do not have bandages, they do not even have brilliant green or iodine.”

Looking exhausted, he carried on: “We use alcohol for disinfection, guys’ wounds are rotting. It’s extremely sad.

“We need really qualified medical care, people need to be taken for medical treatment to clinics,

“I hope that the world community will finally wake up and take away our heroes, our wounded soldiers, who deserve to receive decent medical care after all.”

Russian troops stormed the city on 19th April and destroyed large areas.

However, pockets of organised resistance fighters remain at the plant, refusing to surrender to the invaders’ demands.

Russian troops invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin is still calling a “special military operation”. Today marks the 78th day of the campaign.

The Ukrainian military also claims that Russia has lost 1,195 tanks, 2,873 armoured fighting vehicles, 534 artillery systems, 191 multiple launch rocket systems, 87 anti-aircraft systems, 199 warplanes, 161 helicopters, 2,019 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, 13 vessels, 398 unmanned aerial vehicles, 41 units of special equipment and 94 cruise missiles.
