Leader of the "DNR" Denis Pushilin has stated that a large number of wounded who need blood transfusion may appear in the occupied part of Donetsk oblast. He said this, urging local residents to become donors.
He and several other representatives of the occupation authorities pointedly donated blood and called for their example to be followed, since donor blood may be needed for a large number of wounded in the near future.
The "DNR" leader admitted that after he announced bringing illegal armed formations into a maximum readiness condition, the situation could get out of control.
"The situation is developing in the most unpredictable way… In our experience, we know that both the military and the civilian population may need blood. The blood bank needs to be replenished, now it is not in the best condition", - Pushilin stated, urging the population to actively donate blood.
