    Roubijné, April 13, 2018. As he opens the door to the operating room, the urologist and chief surgeon of Roubijne municipal hospital, Konstantyn Zougan, produces a slight pout of spite. The windows of the room are covered with squares of black plastic. A masked woman makes her way through an old-fashioned bric-a-brac and throws a cloth dripping with blood on the floor. She returns to assist the surgeons in their aortic operation. "At least, in this room, they use one of our new operating lamps," comments Konstantyn Zougan. We in the other room are still with a model dating from 1973 ... "
    In most hospitals in Europe, the operating theater is a sanctuary where delicate operations decide the life and death of patients, with the help of state-of-the-art equipment, electronics and safety protocols. In Roubijné, there is no decent sterilization equipment or air compressor. Only one defibrillator works. The hospital had all the necessary, in the years 1970-1980. But since the collapse of the Soviet system, modernization has only been done sparingly, usually depending on humanitarian organizations. "Even wheelchairs could be museum pieces! Konstantyn Zougan is sorry. Despite this, his operating room is operational 24 hours a day.

    Droujkivka, April 13, 2018. For the deputy chief physician of Druzhkivka Hospital, Hennadiy Iefremov, the reform is not adapted to the Ukrainian realities, especially in a context of war. "Our situation is already difficult. I am afraid that it will become catastrophic ... "Hennadiy Iefremov also feels the decline of the health system in his flesh, and recalls the memories of his three years as a seconded specialist in Cuba. a Soviet contingent. "At the time, we were spreading our knowledge in other countries ..."

    Roubijné, April 13, 2018. An assistant nurse of surgeon Konstantyn Zougan folds sheets in another operating room of Roubijné municipal hospital. In this room with poorly insulated windows, dozens of patients pass by week. More than 50,000 people live in the industrial town of Roubijné. A population impoverished by a permanent economic depression, and bruised by the conflict that has persisted since 2014. Clashes between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian and Russian separatist forces have already claimed more than 10,300 lives, according to the UN. The front line is less than 60 kilometers south of the city. Several thousand displaced people have taken refuge in the city. A destitute population in dire need of care that adds to the burden of the hospital.

    Stanitsa Louhanska, 14 April 2018. 48,000 people, mainly elderly people, continue to live in Stanitsa Luhanska and the surrounding area. In addition, there are some 15,000 displaced people. "We treated over 18,000 patients in the first three months of the year," says Valeriy Ivanov. However, he only has one surgeon out of the three he counted in 2014, and one out of two traumatologists. The radiologist comes from another district, according to his availability. As for the anesthesiologist, it is a soldier who fills the absence of a civilian professional. Sensitive examinations and operations were previously conducted in the regional capital, Luhansk, 15 kilometers to the south. Today, the separatist Luhansk is isolated behind the front line. There is no alternative but to move north, on at least 80 kilometers of dented roads

    Roubijné, April 13, 2018. The maternity ward of Roubijné municipal hospital is gleaming. It has just been refurbished thanks to the intervention in 2017 of humanitarian organizations. Dr. Svitlana Niskaradiva now has analytical instruments and incubators, well-isolated rooms and bright lights.

    Nothing to do with the lower floor where are housed women about to give birth. Run through a dark corridor, the walls are decrepit and floors covered with a disparate assembly of PVC carpets. A typical postcard of a post-Soviet hospital. "We joke that we need a lot of motivation for pregnant women kept under observation here: give birth and you can access the renovated floor! Exclaims Svitlana Niskaradiva.

    Roubijné, April 13, 2018. In Roubijné and beyond, the return to maternity standards is beneficial, as "the level of public health has decreased in recent years," says Svitlana Niskaradiva. "There are no children without health problems in the region," she says, due to heavy industrial pollution, poor insulation of apartments and schools, chronic malnutrition, and a low vaccination rate. Some of the diseases, such as sugar diabetes, were previously treated in the regional capital, Luhansk, explains Svitlana Niskaradiva. "We had to restructure a large part of our services to make up for the division of the region. "

    Stanitsa Louhanska, April 14, 2018. An elderly patient prepares to eat her lunch in the collective room she occupies at Stanitsa Luhanska Hospital. 140 kilometers south of Roubijné, the facility operates with only 50% of its doctors and 48% of its nurses. "It's a disaster," says Chief Medical Officer Valeriy Ivanov. No one wants to come here to replace the missing professionals. And I can understand why ... "

    A few hundred meters from the hospital, the Siverskiy Donets River marks the front line. On the other side, Luhansk, the capital of one of the self-proclaimed separatist republics, is only fifteen kilometers away. The bombings remain regular and the prospects for the future are very uncertain. The bridge over the Siverskyi Donets River was destroyed by bombing in 2015. The fragile wooden bridge of Stanitsa Louhanska remains the main crossing point of the front line in the region.

    Kramatorsk, April 13, 2018. Working conditions, precarious and sometimes dangerous, push young people to leave. At the Donetsk Medical University, in exile in Kramatorsk under Ukrainian control, most of the 3,000 students seem determined to try their luck in big cities in Ukraine, or even abroad. "Students are free to choose," says Rector Petro Kondratenko. I understand the difficulties of some institutions in attracting young people. But we can not ask our graduates to sacrifice everything at the beginning of their careers. "

    Russian-speaking separatist armed group active in eastern Ukraine. It is commissioned by Aleksandr Sergeyevich Khodakosvsky. With a strength of approximately 2,500 men, it is one of the main military components of the Donetsk People's Republic and shares its operational zone with the Oplot Battalion. It would consist of former members of the Ukrainian "Alpha" and "Berkut" special groups, as well as veterans of the war in Chechnya, with the bulk of its membership coming from the local population.

    The Vostok Battalion is positioned along the 800 km front line. The unit of the commander "ZORA" is located in the most important industrial areas of the Dombass region between Yasinovataya and Avdeevka.
    The position of the name "DOZAR" is located under a bridge of the motorway between Donetsk-Gorlovka. The infrastructure helps to protect the fighters during the bombing of the Ukrainian army. The fighters live to less than 15 people in houses built on the ends of the bridge.
    The days are long and tiring for RPD troops who reinforce their lines each morning with sandbags and land reclaimed from the ground returning through exploding shell holes the night before. They dig holes and trenches without seeing the end of the tunnel of this waiting war.
