    Two Polish volunteers who sustained wounds near the combat zone in Ukraine were taken to a medical facility in Lublin, which is in the east of Poland, according to the spokesperson of the health ministry.

    On Tuesday, Wojciech Andrusiewicz informed PAP that the volunteers had been injured close to the city of Bakhmut in the Donetsk area of Ukraine, which is in the vicinity of the border between Ukraine and Russia’s military.

    “They were unpacking aid for civilians from a car when a mortar shell exploded nearby,” Andrusiewicz said. “Unfortunately, in the case of the woman, this ended in the amputation of the shin. The man has suffered shrapnel wounds.”

    The Polish charity foundation Humanosh transported the wounded from Ukraine to the Polish border, where they were taken over by a Lublin medical transport.

    Health Minister Adam Niedzielski met with both patients.
