heartbreaking story

Via a video link from his office inside the hospital, Plavskyi talks to Dagbladet about the way he has lived the past few months – a period marked by strong impressions and sleepless nights.

– When the situation was at its worst, we opened the emergency room for two days. We made two operating rooms, and everyone who was injured was sent there.

At first, they only give priority to children. But the wounded who entered were many. In the end, they realized that they had to provide help to everyone who needed it – both adults and children.

When asked if there were any special events that he remembered well, he suddenly weighed.

During war, we have to make tough decisions. We must constantly assess who is most affected and who we should operate on first.

He stops and takes a deep breath.

– We brought in a little boy who was seriously injured. In peacetime, we would operate on the baby, but we had limited equipment that could help him. Outside the hospital there was constant bombing and we had to evacuate more people to the basement. He says we had to let the child die.

– How is it tested?

– Terrible. It is very difficult to make such decisions.

After receiving the medal I ran straight and continued the process for another three hours. When I came home in the evening, I mostly thought of the child I had operated on, and not the medal I received from Zelensky.

The medal is not only mine. It’s for the whole team. All doctors, all specialists. We will continue to do our best to save as many as possible.

Fear of new attacks

Throughout the war, thousands of civilians were killed by Russian forces. When asked if he feared the hospital would be a target for the Russians, he replied:

– I really hope not. They seem to be trying to destroy strategic targets and infrastructure, so I don’t think they are so ruthless that they attack a children’s hospital.

In several cases, they had bullet holes in the windows and witnessed fierce battles near the hospital, he said.

– We will stay here if there is a new wave of attacks. Everyone should get the help they need.
