Summary

Ukrainians from government-controlled Donbas territories are traveling to the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic for free medical treatment, since it is difficult to obtain medical care in Ukraine, particularly free care, which is readily available in separatist controlled territories.

Disproof

The myth of free medical care in the self-proclaimed republics has been debunked more than once bit.ly/2v2ehAl, . The claims about the lack of medical care in Ukraine have also been refuted, for example the funding for cancer care increased from 397 million hryvnia in 2016 to 445 million in 2017. bit.ly/2u3PBdd,

Donetsk People’s Republic opens official representation in France.

These offices however, have no legal standing. bit.ly/2sLG6Mi, Another such representative office opened in the Czech Republic and was officially closed recently by a court decision bit.ly/2t4r8QX, .
