Over the past two years, there has been a significant surge in the number of cancer patients in the temporarily occupied regions of Ukraine, including a concerning rise among children.

This was reported by the Eastern Human Rights Group.

According to the group’s findings, during the period of 2022-2023, there was a notable increase in cancer cases among local residents in the Russian-occupied Luhansk and Donetsk regions. This alarming trend is attributed to a shortage of medical workers and oncologists in clinics, with a lack of initiatives for cancer prevention and diagnosis.

The report also highlights a distinct issue: in addition to adults, there has been a sharp increase in cancer cases among children, particularly those associated with blood diseases, such as blood cancer.

«Earlier, we reported on mine water that poisons the environment and adversely affects the health of local residents», – stated the Eastern Human Rights Group.
