Wounded Ukrainian soldiers have been transported to Poland on a special medical train.

This was announced by Poland’s Deputy Interior Minister Blazej Pobozy, the CFTS portal reports, citing the Rail Insider publication.

According to the official, the concept for the train was implemented back in February. It was intended for transporting the wounded from the front to Poland.

Previously, the special train was used mainly for transporting children suffering from oncological diseases, as well as large groups of refugees.

"This train brought 32 wounded soldiers of the Ukrainian army to Poland for the first time on 18 July. All of them were safely transported to Polish hospitals, where they are being treated," he said.

As reported earlier, the Ukrainian Railways joint-stock company (Ukrzaliznytsia), the Doctors Without Borders international organization, and the Ministry of Health launched an evacuation train/mini hospital for transporting injured people to the Lviv region in April.
