+Grim Reaper 6 Posted March 10 #1 Share Posted March 10 Quote Ukrainian troops are not leaving the front lines, where casualties are high and Russian reinforcements just keep coming, to seek care for a range of mental health issues, and those that do quickly find themselves back in the fight. Soldiers on the lines report suffering from nightmares, trauma, stress, insomnia, and guilt. According to The Washington Post, Ukrainian forces have largely remained in combat despite experiencing severe mental health issues. While some are able to seek treatment or see their families, they are almost immediately sent back into combat. Others are reluctant to leave the line to get care in the first place. Some Ukrainian troops said there's a comparative lack of reinforcements available to replace them, especially as Russia continues to throw troops and Wagner Group members into battle, exhausting Ukrainian manpower. Mental health discussions are still considered taboo in Ukraine, especially for soldiers, The Post reported. This leaves soldiers on the front lines, even as they suffer post-traumatic stress and trauma, unwilling to talk about their mental health. "It's a pain and a suffering you bestow upon someone else," a soldier told The Post. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/ukrainian-soldiers-are-haunted-by-nightmares-and-having-mental-breakdowns-but-they-are-not-leaving-the-front-lines-to-seek-care/ar-AA18tnby?cvid=eec80d19045a43f79b101f41e362910c&ei=18 1 4 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
