Each kit costs 175 Canadian dollars and is made up so that a soldier could for the first ten minutes provide paramedical assistance for himself or from his colleague, Ukrinform reports. "Canadian military doctors, who now teach at the Ukrainian Yavoriv military training ground, first of all focus on paramedical emergency assistance. Their knowledge and skills they share with Ukrainian soldiers, supplying first aid kits with medicines to stop bleeding and other emergency measures for saving lives," registered nurse from the 30th mechanized brigade Oleh Bratsyuk told the press-club, Ukrinform reports. According to him,  NATO countries including Canada teach first aid care to all their staff, and then later shooters-paramedics, paramedics, and paramedics instructors are  taught in-depth who are tasked with  providing better medical care in the first line of the battle. Overseas partners especially focus on medical training of ordinary soldiers. After they take such a course, every serviceman can provide first aid during combat, because if you do it properly in the first ten minutes, the chances for survival greatly increase. This NATO standard is being implemented now in the ATO zone in Donbas.
