Fighting gets closer to Kyiv
A car screeches up to a hospital just North of Kyiv, there’s a soldier in the boot, one more laying across the back seat, two more in the front. They scream for help, some are injured. Two more ambulances rush up behind, also full of casualties.
The men have been hit by mortar rounds just north of us, at least 7 of them are injured. Some seriously. All of them are shocked, shaking, bloody. The hospital’s staff, who until two weeks ago would deal with everyday injuries, are now frantically treating shrapnel and bullet wounds.
While the soldiers try to fight off the Russian advance some civilians refuse to flee. They gather in basements, the young looking after the elderly who cannot or will not leave their homes. The boom of artillery is constant, even down here.
Civilian areas are being hit seemingly indiscriminately, houses, cars, someone’s greenhouse, all are damaged beyond repair. Pets without owners roaming the streets, starving.
