Europabus is an annual project that accompanies the celebration of the Europe Days in Ukraine. Today, the Europabus for the first time arrived to Uzhgorod, stopping on the central square, the Zakarpatsky Korespondent informs.

Representatives of diplomatic bodies - the Consul General of the Slovak Republic Janka Burianova and the Consul General of Hungary in Uzhgorod Jozsef Bachkayi, UzhNU students, tourists, volunteers and Uzhgorod residents joined the activities of the EU Delegation information campaign.

The initiative "Europabus: unite Ukraine" is a part of the information campaign "Building Europe in Ukraine", which the EU Delegation has been holding for a year all over Ukraine. It is the most important event for the future of Ukraine and its position in Europe, because the Eurobus is an alternative way of educational activities on European topics aimed to unite Ukraine and the EU and to increase interest of urban residents to European integration.

During the campaign, the visitors had an opportunity to talk with EU diplomats, to participate in contests and quizzes on knowledge of the facts about the EU, together with artists to paint on magnet symbols from different countries of Europe, to participate in selfie-flashmob #Europabus, to visit Europe-themed outdoor library and photo exhibitions.

NGO "Carpathian Sich" with the "Medical Volunteer" of UzhNU conducted a training on military and tactical medicine.

Tactical medicine. This quite simple, but very important subject was completely ignored in the Ukrainian armed forces. Also, unfortunately, only a small number of our defenders have modern "NATO" first aid kits. The process has just started. But to provide all soldiers with modern kits is only half the battle. They must know how to use its components. They also must know how to approach a wounded soldier, stop bleeding and so on.

The following trainings were conducted: "Basics of evacuation," "Control of bleeding from wounds", "Cardiopulmonary resuscitation", "Restoring the patency of airways", "Control of arterial bleeding using bandages and CELOX strips", "Immobilization" (application of splints)" and so on.

The Sich members promise to continue conducting trainings: "If there are no skills of first aid provision or self-help on the battlefield, it is impossible to survive!"
