The Ukrainian military doctor, surgeon, and head of the Western Military Medical Clinic Center, Viktor Lovga, has accused the Kiev government of hiding losses among fighters in the so-called “Anti-Terrorist Operation” in Donbass.

“In order to avoid panic, the authorities are hiding real losses. In the period when I was in the ATO zone, the press wrote about, let’s say, five wounded, while we were carrying around 10-15 injured from the battlefield in a single day,” the surgeon revealed.

Lovga added: “Ukrainians are not ready to hear the real number of dead, missing, wounded, and maimed.”

The Ukrainian military doctor also recalled the painful problem of the so-called “best armed forces in Europe”: alcoholism: “It was easier to work during the first three mobilization waves. Then volunteers came who had ideas, passion. Now it’s more people being forced. The level of alcohol consumption has skyrocketed.”
