To the north of Bakhmut, the Russian occupiers have sharply increased the offensive efforts of their infantry, and the intensity of enemy artillery shelling has also sharply increased in the entire area from Siversk to Toretsk, TSN reports. 

In Bakhmut itself, residential buildings are on fire and people who have remained in the city until now go outside only in case of urgent need.

At the same time, both wounded soldiers and civilians injured by Russian shelling are taken to military medical stabilization points under fire. 

In the villages located south of Bakhmut, a non-stop war is raging around the clock.

"Sometimes it quiets down for half an hour, not longer.

It is stable from morning to evening.

It happens at night, not often, but there are times when there is shooting," - says a serviceman of the Armed Forces of the Sun.

Bakhmut himself is under round-the-clock fire from heavy Russian artillery, tanks and mortars.

The artillery barrage does not stop on the northeastern outskirts.

Enemy, heavy shells fall right between the residential buildings with the intensity - half a dozen per minute.

The streets in the city are almost deserted.

There are now hundreds of times more burned cars and hits to residential buildings than living people.

Those who dare to go outside to the sounds of artillery cannonade are looking for firewood for a street bonfire, this is the only way they cook food here now, or walk to places where you can get a "humanitarian aid", or carry plastic bottles with self-made carts.

Literally every such exit to the street, for the townspeople, is a desperate race ahead with death. 

One of the places where people in the Bakhmut region fight for their lives with death is the military medical stabilization point.

"We do not refuse help to anyone.

Civilians, children, and adults with serious injuries were brought in," local doctors say. 

When they first deployed their headquarters at the end of February in the Luhansk region, say the medics of the 24th Royal Brigade, they had to spend a lot of time on the floor.

"We started deploying our stabilization points, then the first month was very difficult, it thundered much louder.

And we lay on the floor for a long time," says Borys Kabakov, an anesthesiologist at the stabilization point of the 24th OMBr. 

It happened when Russian planes flew over the front line and dropped bombs just on the medical posts, the floor did not save at all.

"We had a headquarters and an aerial bomb landed there.

Even then, unfortunately, several guys died in the building," adds Yury Cherednyk, a traumatologist

The work becomes more difficult when shelling and nearby territories begin.

"When there are mass admissions of people - 70-80 people each, there are 10-15 minutes per patient," the doctors say.  

We have to work even faster now, when the enemy storms the Ukrainian defense line around Bakhmut many times a day.

Wounded Ukrainian soldiers are taken to the headquarters simply from the trenches.

In many ways, the doctors of the stabilization point admit, the life of the soldiers depends on the combat medics who are next to our soldiers at ground zero.

"A combat medic must do two things - this is to stop the bleeding, if possible, if it is possible - anesthesia.

And deliver here by a safer route," says Bohdan Boychuk, a doctor at the stabilization point of the 24th OMBr.

They can do a lot of things, doctors assure, here anesthesiologists, surgeons, and traumatologists work in the same team.

All of them were civilian doctors until February.

But the rules of military field medicine require, first of all, to do everything to get the wounded to the inpatient hospital alive.

"We have to do everything possible here so that our colleagues can provide specialized assistance to the patient already at the hospital stage and not, excuse me, to a critical or lost patient," explains Bohdan Boychuk, a doctor at the stabilization point of the 24th OMBr.
