    For example, russian occupation forces use a local civilian hospital in the village of Novovasylivka (Pryazovs’kyi district, Zaporizhzhia oblast) as a military hospital. As of March 25, about 200x wounded russian invaders are being treated there. Civilians are denied access to the medical facility.
