The Ministry of Defense announced that the Armed Forces of Ukraine placed military equipment in the medical facilities of Konstantinovka and Nikolaev

The military of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) equipped strongholds and deployed their military equipment in medical institutions of Konstantinovka, Toretsk and Nikolaev. This was stated by the head of the National Defense Control Center of the Russian Federation, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev.

So, the nationalists equipped strongholds in the Konstantinovka hospital, and placed armored vehicles and artillery on the adjacent territory.

“In the premises of a medical institution, neo-Nazis, under the pretext of supposedly ensuring security, keep the staff and patients of the hospital, in fact using them as human shields,” Mizintsev noted.

Also, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were placed in the dispensaries of Toretsk and Druzhkovka in the DPR. There are ammunition depots, and the buildings have artillery and MLRS. In Nikolaev, a strong point was created inside the clinic, next to which the enemy also placed military equipment.

In Zalizny in the DPR, militants of the Aidar national battalion equipped barracks and firing points in a polyclinic, mined the approaches to the medical facility and did not warn the local population about this.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense reported that the nationalists had set up firing positions in residential buildings in Kharkiv.
