UK Defence Intelligence Reports Impact of Russia’s War on Healthcare


Share post:

The UK Ministry of Defence, through its intelligence arm, suggests that the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine is likely having adverse effects on healthcare in Russia. According to a review by UK Defence Intelligence dated January 14, the Russian population is believed to be experiencing challenges in accessing hospital services, with reports indicating shortages of medical supplies, including broad-spectrum antibiotics.

Russian media has reportedly highlighted difficulties faced by the population in obtaining hospital services throughout the country. The war’s significant impact on healthcare is attributed to hospitals treating wounded soldiers, as the conflict continues between Russia and Ukraine.

In response to the strains imposed by the war, the Russian government has been compelled to reduce the size of civilian medical facilities nationwide. This downsizing is reportedly a result of shortages in medical staff and financial hardships faced by the healthcare sector in Russia.

The situation raises concerns about the overall health infrastructure and accessibility of medical services for the Russian population, amplifying the challenges faced by civilians as a consequence of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
