While visiting the field hospital Israel established last month in Ukraine April 4, Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz tweeted, "Israel is the only country operating a field hospital in Ukraine. More than 200 people have already been treated here. We will continue reaching out to the Ukrainian people. This our moral duty in the face of the brutal Russian invasion, in the face of the massacres and war crimes taking place on this land."

Horowitz went on, "It is very difficult to see the pictures from the massacre in Bucha. But one must not look away nor divert attention from the war crimes committed by Russia. A crime against humanity, against freedom and human rights and against the entire democratic world. I came today to the field hospital we set up in Ukraine to clarify: Ukraine, you are not alone."
