Prague, Oct. 19 (CTK) – The Czech Defense Ministry can treat up to 35 wounded Ukrainian soldiers in its hospitals, and these military hospitals have so far treated nine of these soldiers, the ministry said on its website. .
Ukraine mainly needs surgical and orthopedic care.
Since the beginning of the Russian aggression in Ukraine on February 24, six Ukrainian soldiers have been treated at the Central Military Hospital in Prague (UVN) and three at the Military Hospital in Olomouc.
Ukraine’s healthcare needs are still enormous and many times exceed the total capacity of Czech military hospitals, the ministry wrote.
“If this were to happen overnight, we would be taking care of 22 people. Nevertheless, we are ready to accept more soldiers. We offer up to 35 [hospital] beds over a longer period,” Deputy Defense Minister Filip Riha said.
The UVN can assign two beds to the surgery department and two to the orthopedic department.
The Olomouc military hospital can provide four beds for patients with arm or leg injuries, three beds for immediate intensive care and three for rehabilitation services.
The military hospital in Brno has five surgical beds and three orthopedic beds at immediate disposal.
Based on an agreement in early February, soldiers should be selected for treatment by Czech military doctors, who themselves cannot enter the territory of a foreign state during the war. For this reason, medical reports were presented to them by the Czech military attache in Ukraine, and the doctors select concrete patients for the Czech Republic to accept.
“Depending on the diagnosis, the decision is made whether the patient needs air or road transport,” Riha said.
Ukraine is primarily interested in surgical and orthopedic treatment as well as follow-up care and rehabilitation for soldiers who have already undergone surgery in Ukraine, the ministry wrote.
He said that Ukraine is in charge of related administration. “The financing was defined by the agreement of this month of February. The [patients’] the transport to the Czech Republic was provided by us, as were the processing fees,” Riha said.
