‘Our combat medics are ready to cope with the toughest tasks, and that became possible because they have been relying on the huge experience and potential of the Ukrainian medicine. They are ready for the worst possible scenario so that they can save lives of Ukrainian warriors,’ he said.
The Doctor’s Day is annually celebrated in Ukraine on the third Sunday in June; this year, it’s June 18.
