Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
thehill | On the Polish border with Ukraine, war wounded find refuge, care
The emergency medical hub, a temporary installation set up outside of Rzeszów's small airport, is a critical transit point for Ukrainians who can't be treated in their own hospitals and must be evacuated to Europe. They cross Poland's border from Ukraine by ambulance and arrive with battle injuries: gunshot and shrapnel wounds; spinal injuries; amputated limbs; bodies suffering from the effects of explosive blasts. [...] It's a temporary but critical stopover for Ukraine's war wounded before continuing on for advanced treatment in hospitals across Europe, largely evacuated by plane from Rzeszów's airport.

The influx of medical staff came following U.S., European and NATO forces converging on the small town and airport to streamline weapons deliveries to Ukraine. Patriot missile batteries dot the landscape to protect cargo shipments.
