CAMPOS, Fernando  e  SANTOS, Catarina. War in Ukraine: the fundamental right to Health and political challenges of international humanitarian law. População e Sociedade [online]. 2023, n.39, pp.17-25.  Epub 02-Out-2023. ISSN 0873-1861.

The war and violence that have prevailed in Ukraine since February 2022 have become a scourge for the population in this country. Civilian populations, men, women, and children have been the main victims of attacks inflicted by Russia. The situation has become more and more astonishing, with attacks ranging from bombings to residential areas to hospitals and maternity wards. That said, the question that arises in this regard is the lack of timely assistance to parturients and their babies, configuring an attack on fundamental rights - life and health. In this sense, to mitigate the damage caused in Ukraine by the Russian State, International Law emerges to protect the dignity and integrity of Ukrainian citizens. In addition to the essential work carried out by the UN, through UNHCR, UNICEF, as well as by the WHO and the NGO Doctors Without Borders, without devaluing the other entities that participate. Given the aforementioned, this article intends to respond to the violations committed by the Russian State in terms of the bombings carried out on Ukrainian medical infrastructure and how to act at an international level, to avoid more lives lost.
