The Rossiya-24 news channel showed Putin wearing a white coat while chatting to Russian troops at Moscow’s Mandryka military hospital.
After meeting the wounded men, Putin said at a televised meeting with government officials: “These are people who are risking their health and lives for the sake of the people and children of Donbas, for the sake of Russia. They are all heroes.”
