STORYLINE:
As the fighting continues on the frontline in Ukraine, Ukrainian military medics were working tirelessly to provide essential medical assistance to wounded Ukrainian soldiers on Friday.

Medics from the 47th Brigade treated soldiers in a field hospital as Russia advanced in the direction of Avdiivka.

"Avdiivka direction is one of the hottest directions of the front, so there is always a lot of work here," said a military doctor who goes by the call sign ‘Viter’ for security reasons.

Reporters from The Associated Press spent a day with the medics to get an understanding of the life they were leading.

"Whenever possible we follow events, news, a map of combat operations and the advance of the enemy every day," ‘Viter’ continued.

"We must work for victory, for the salvation of our soldiers, heroes. Everyone who enters here, who is brought here, they are all heroes," he added.
