Formerly known for its vineyards and other salt mines, Bakhmout has now become the "slaughterhouse" of eastern Ukraine.
Attacked for more than six months by the Russian army, the city resists but suffers repeated violent attacks.
On the front, nurses and paramedics play a crucial role.
Every day, they take turns picking up wounded soldiers and bringing them back as quickly as possible to the main hospital in Bakhmout, a few kilometers from the Russian army.

"He has a brain injury, an injury caused by an explosive mine, a fractured humerus, and a fragmentary injury to the knee joint," comments Georgiï.
“I feel that my help is needed.
