Ukrainian rescue vehicles continue their Eurotrip to raise awareness of the consequences of the war in Ukraine and remind Europeans the war in Ukraine is still on.
This ambulance car was shelled by Russian troops in a village in the Kharkiv region in September. Medical workers arrived to provide first aid to an injured civilian but didn’t manage to evacuate him as the car was targeted by a mine. The Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine reports 400 ambulances have been destroyed since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion, and this number is increasing daily.
The car was delivered from Ukraine by volunteers of Lukraine asbl within a framework of the global fundraising campaign Ukraine is Calling. Before this destroyed ambulance was installed in Esch-Sur-Alzette, Luxembourg.
We appreciate the Metz authorities for their cooperation and for supporting our initiative!
