Emergency medical aviation to operate in Ukraine before end of 2018

In Ukraine, by the end of 2018, emergency aviation units will begin to work, in particular, for the rapid delivery of patients to medical facilities, Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman has said.

"I think that as determined by us at the initiative of the interior minister, we will make emergency aviation in the country. I think that by the end of the year we will launch such units," Groysman said at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers in Kyiv on Wednesday.

He added that this would allow, if necessary, to promptly deliver patients to medical institutions.
