“Today we send 2000 medical kits, which Wladimir and I purchased in the USA, to our soldiers on the frontline,” the mayor said. “Each kit costs $100 and they meet NATO standards. Moreover we have translated and printed out instruction leaflets for our soldiers so that they can provide emergency first aid for themselves or wounded fellows.”
Vitali Klitschko has expressed confidence that those kits would be able to save many lives of Ukrainian soldiers. “It is really sad that large percentage of our combat losses is caused by absence of timely emergency aid,” Klitschko added.
President’s advisor, famous volunteer Yuri Biryukov, who attended the event, stressed that the kits will be distributed in accordance with the rotation schedules in order to supply the kits to those soldiers who would be on the frontline in the nearest time.
Tactical paramedics told that the kits are equipped with blood stoppers, tactical ropes, thoracic wounds remedies, and thermal blankets. Each soldier will be taught how to use the stuff of the kits.
