The Wider Image: Ukrainian army medics fight to save lives near frontline
Volodymyr, a general practitioner in a frontline medical stabilisation point, poses for a picture inside the operation room where medics treat war wounds, amid Russia's attack on Ukraine, near Vuhledar, Donetsk region, Ukraine, February 19, 2023. Nearly a year into Russia's invasion, fighting now amounts to attritional duels of artillery and infantry assaults, with neither side making significant gains. The costs of that deadly grind are clear to the team of medics and nurses as it toils away, hemmed in by racks of medical supplies and portable heaters, at this stabilisation point in the Donetsk region where battles are fierce.
