Dr Donbass: Behind the frontline

Alinat is a young field doctor in Donbass. She treats both soldiers and civilians. “The injuries are all completely different. At first, I had to try to grasp it somehow, but now it’s getting a little easier. Anyway, there is still a lot to learn, a lot,” Alinat says as she talks about her daily routine. She and her family did not support the government coup and have always been pro-Russian. When Ukrainian tanks came, they only made things clearer. Now she does her best to relieve the suffering of as many people as possible and prays for her brother, who joined the Donbass militia in the first days of the civil war. “The hardest thing is when patients die because they are all young; they are, in fact, healthy when they come here. They are someone’s brothers,” she says. Learn more about her and other courageous doctors who risk their lives to save others.
