In the temporarily occupied Kherson, most doctors choose not to cooperate with the invading forces.
This was reported by the CrimeaSOS NGO, according to Ukrinform.
“Doctors in Kherson are massively refusing to cooperate with the occupiers. Currently, there is information that doctors are applying for vacations or file for resignation to avoid pressure from the Russian military,” said Denys Savchenko, Chairman of the Board of CrimeaSOS.
It was also reported that local clinics could be turned into military hospitals to treat Russian soldiers.
“In Kherson, the occupiers are trying to turn one of the clinics into a military hospital for Russian soldiers. However, the option is possible that the equipment be removed. Representatives of the occupation authorities are taking photos of equipment across medical institutions,” Savchenko added.
It is noted that the situation with medication stocks in local clinics remains unclear. Earlier it was reported that it is critical for the civilian population – about 90% of pharmacies in Kherson and the region have been shut down.
As Ukrinform reported, on May 25, Russian President Putin signed a decree according to which Russia will grant citizenship to residents of the temporarily occupied territories of Zaporizhia and Kherson regions of Ukraine under a simplified procedure.
The Kherson regional council called it “naturalization under torture.”
In Kherson region, the invaders are blocking humanitarian corridors and evacuations, while abducting civilians, including journalists, community leaders, deputies, activists, former soldiers with the Anti-Terrorist Operation, farmers, and teachers. Resources are running out in the temporarily occupied territory of the region as businesses have stopped operations.
