RIA Novosti published an article about the poor training of the Russian military in the field of tactical medicine. Artyom Katulin, head of the tactical medicine training center of the Kalashnikov concern, told the agency that more than half of the deaths in the war are not from life-threatening wounds, but from medical errors.
“Today, the statistics are sad: over the past five years, more than 85,000 people have died in traffic accidents in our country. She is also sad in terms of SVO: more than 30% of amputations were performed due to incorrect application of a tourniquet, more than 50% of all deaths did not occur from life-threatening injuries, ”said Katulin.
Previously, they were going to judge for such statements under the article about "fakes" about the Russian army, a military surgeon and Z-patriot Yuri Yevich. A lawsuit against Yevich was filed by a representative of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs for Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk after he gave a lecture on military-patriotic education in front of the National Guard on Sakhalin.
The protocol on the administrative offense mentioned four quotations from a three-hour lecture during which the military doctor was said to have "made statements aimed at creating a negative assessment of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation due to the implementation of the SVO." Yevich, in particular, pointed to the insufficient level of training and equipment in the medical field among the employees of the National Guard. As a result, the court in the Kaluga region did not accept the protocol against Yevich and the case was never opened.
