Mykolaiv is one of the biggest southern cities in Ukraine. It is the outpost of the Ukrainian fight against russians as well.

Mykolaiv is fighting fiercely and strikes back all the attacks from the russian troops. Meanwhile, the enemy intensifies the number of missile attacks and uses cluster bombs, forbidden by international law. This is how it all influenced the city’s healthcare system.

As of April 20, the Ukrainian healthcare center team documented 141 facilities attacked by russians, 11 of them situated in the Mykolaiv region.

On March 7, City hospital #3 was left without 60 windows, shattered by the russian attack. Volunteers helped to cover windows with plastic. The hospital is operational, but not entirely.

On March 11, russians attacked Regional Oncology Hospital. The facility had some light damage and managed to keep fully operational.

“Only monsters attack sick people. These bastards attacked patients with cancer! Our local oncology facility. If people can unite around hatred of an enemy — well, we’re the most united nation worldwide! If russia sees our patients with cancer as enemies and rivals — I suggest it is dying as well. This is what makes us happy,” — said Maksym Beznosenko, head of the local health department.

On April 4, city hospitals were attacked with cluster bombs. They hit 4 hospitals: City hospital #5, Regional hospital, Regional center for disease control, and Children’s city hospital.

During this attack, russian troops damaged the buildings and expensive medical equipment, medical vehicles, technical buildings, and communication lines. See the video of the shelling of a children’s hospital.

Тhe enemy attacked Another 4 medical facilities the following days. Among them are an Emergency care station, Regional ophthalmology clinic, Regional mental health center, and City children’s care facility for orphans.

On April 19, russians hit a multifunctional hospital in Bashtanka. During the attack, they damaged 2 departments and a polyclinic. Luckily, this attack was without any casualties.

Today, city hospitals work as humanitarian assistance spots, providing residents with drinking water (russians damaged the local water supply system last week).

Damaged pipelines are located on the temporarily occupied territories and cannot be repaired in the following days due to the heavy shelling.

Medical professionals constantly provide services to all residents, even under the attacks. And we continue to document russian war crimes.
