War chaplains step up to take part in medic training

Prev 01 20 Next

At least hundred military chaplains gathered at the Patriarchal Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ in Kyiv for 2-day tactical medic training course organized by Patriot Defense, a non-governmental organization, headed by Uliana Suprun, a Ukrainian-American volunteer.

Suprun wanted the organization to address specific needs in Ukraine —
the need for Combat Lifesaver Training Courses – and to provide
NATO-standard Improved First Aid Kits for Ukraine’s servicemen.

Suprun
together with her husband moved to Ukraine at the end of 2013 to show
the soldiers how to deal with catastrophic bleeding and experience
combat situations in practice.
As of August 2015, Patriot Defence
has conducted more than 250 training sessions, providing Combat
Lifesaver training to over 24,000 soldiers and cadets across the
country.

As a part of the 2-day training course, military chaplains learned
how to treat burns, wounds, and apply tourniquets, analgesics and hemostatic
devices until professional medical help is available.
