The alert is given. The World Health Organization (WHO) warned Monday, November 21, that winter will threaten the lives of millions of Ukrainians, after a series of Russian strikes on the country's energy infrastructure.

"To put it simply, this winter will be a question of survival", told journalists Hans Kluge, the regional director of WHO for Europe.

More than 700 attacks recorded

damage to Ukrainian energy infrastructure "already have devastating effects on the health system and the health of the population," he added. According to him, the WHO has recorded more than 700 attacks on Ukrainian health establishments since the start of the Russian invasion in February, which, according to him, constitutes "a manifest violation" of international humanitarian law.

This means that "hundreds of hospitals and health establishments are no longer fully operational," he said. "We expect two to three million additional people to leave their homes looking for heat and safety."

"They will face important health problems, including respiratory infections such as COVID-19, pneumonia, flu and a serious risk of diphtheria and measles in an undervacinated population," added Hans Kluge.
