BRAVE doctors in Ukraine were forced to perform operations in the dark lit only by phone flashlights after a power cut in Kyiv.
With no power staff relied on the flashlight from their smartphones to persist with the life-saving medical procedures.
Last week a Kyiv hospital experienced a power cut while performing open heart surgery on a 14-year-old boy.
Dr. Mikhail Zagrychuk, a transplant surgeon at the hospital, said: “They managed to finish this surgery, and fortunately this child survived, and the surgery was successful. But the first couple of seconds … it was very horrible.”
Kyiv has been bombarded with Putin’s missiles since Russia invaded the country on February 20.
Residents have been forced to become used to living in half-destroyed buildings and facing the looming prospect of death everyday.
