Kazakhstan sends 41 hospital generators to Ukraine

Kazakhstan donated 41 generators to be used in Ukrainian hospitals, the war-hit country's Health Ministry announced.

"They will be transferred to regions that are under attack by Russian aggressors and where they are most needed — in Mykolaiv, Dnipropetrovsk, and Kharkiv," the ministry said in a statement on Facebook late on Sunday.

Health Minister Viktor Liashko said each of the generators would help provide uninterrupted power to operating rooms, intensive care units, and oxygen stations, the statement added.

"The batch of generators was delivered thanks to the work of the inter-parliamentary friendship group 'Ukraine-Kazakhstan' chaired by People's Deputy Serhiy Nagornyak," it noted.

Ukraine's energy infrastructure has been the target of Russian attacks since the start of the war in late February, though strikes increased dramatically after an Oct. 8 explosion damaged Russia's key Kerch Bridge connecting the country with the Crimean peninsula, annexed illegally in 2014.
