The Wider Image: Inside a Ukraine hospital where medics work as rockets fall
Elena Bulakhtina, a Russian-born Canadian from the Pirogov First Volunteer Mobile Hospital carries her dog Rica, who she rescued during a mission a few days prior, amid Russia's invasion in Ukraine, outside a hospital in Bakhmut, Donetsk region, Ukraine, May 5, 2022. "I haven't seen so much human tragedy before. Absolutely unnecessary suffering," said Bulakhtina, who is using her ability to speak Russian to communicate with Ukrainians from regions like Donbas, where the Russian language dominates. She counts herself lucky to have a Canadian passport and medical training that allowed her entry into the country. REUTERS/Jorge Silva SEARCH "SILVA UKRAINE HOSPITAL" FOR THIS STORY.
