Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) promised Ukraine support for the care of the seriously injured during a visit.

“Ukraine needs humanitarian aid just as urgently as our military support,” Lauterbach said on Friday in Lviv, western Ukraine ( Lviv) according to a statement from his ministry. Lauterbach was received by his Ukrainian colleague Viktor Ljaschko.

Lauterbach wanted to take part in a donor conference in Lemberg to set up a rehabilitation center for war invalids. The program also included visiting several hospitals. The aim of the visit is, among other things, to support Ukraine in setting up trauma centers for the injured, according to the ministry.

“So much misery has arisen here as a result of this barbaric war of aggression,” said Lauterbach in the ARD “Morgenmagazin”. He was on the road with a team of surgeons and specialists “to help with the care of seriously injured people with burns – that’s where we want to train, that’s where we want to build up,” said Lauterbach in the morning from Poland.

Specifically, the federal government wants to support the installation and operation of container workshops for the manufacture of prostheses. 2022 surgeons and emergency physicians would have offered to work in Ukraine via the German Medical Association.

Lauterbach said: “Children step on mines, lose limbs. Blocks of flats are shelled, and innocent civilians and children are seriously injured.” The Russian armed forces bombed health facilities, sometimes several times a day. “Ukraine needs humanitarian aid just as urgently as our military support.”

The Minister of Health also referred to the simultaneous visit to Ukraine by Agriculture Minister Cem Ă–zdemir (Greens) on ARD. “We are doing a humanitarian initiative here on behalf of the entire federal government, including Olaf Scholz,” said Lauterbach, referring to the Chancellor. (dpa)
