Estonia May Provide Inpatient Care for Injured Ukrainians ({{commentsTotal}})


The head of the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid Division, Kaili Terras, has asked the Ministry of Social Affairs to review Estonian capabilities for helping those injured in protests in Ukraine.

“We need the expert opinion of the Social Affairs Ministry's health services on what services, on what conditions and in which hospitals we could, potentially, help,” Terras told medical news website Med24 on Tuesday.

She added that costs have to be calculated and negotiations held with hospitals, before any decision is made.

“The provisional plan is to cover the health costs of the victims in Ukraine from the foreign ministry's humanitarian funds,” Terras said.
