Ukraine: MSF medical train evacuations B-ROLL

Before the horrific reports of the train station bombing today, MSF’s medical evacuation train transported 57 patients from Luhansk region. Two referral groups were from Kramatorsk.

Christopher Stokes, MSF Emergency Coordinator in Ukraine, said:

“I am horrified by reports of bombing or a missile strike today on Kramatorsk station. We were there yesterday, and we saw hundreds of people crowding the station, trying to leave. The hospitals had been urgently calling us to evacuate their patients by train. Most came from Sievierodonestk and other towns in Luhansk region. We were just in time with this train. Big questions whether we will be able to go back to evacuate more people.”
