Injured anti-government protesters fearing arrest are shunning Kiev's hospitals and choosing to undergo operations in field clinics run by an army of volunteer doctors.Videos posted online Thursday show police raiding an emergency ward in Kiev and arresting injured activists in their beds.Pyvovarov is part of a team of 10 volunteer doctors based at two medical points at the main flashpoint near Dynamo Kiev football stadium.Medics say up to six people have died since clashes last week, three of whom are recognized by the prosecutor's office as having died from gunshot wounds.Pyvovarov said he would only send the most severe cases to a few hospitals with trusted doctors.Protest groups, known collectively as 'Euromaidan,' say officially 30 to 40 activists have been arrested in hospital, but the real number is much higher.Musii runs the medical service of around 100 volunteer doctors, nurses and military medics from Kiev House of Trade Unions on Independence Square, where the protest movement has its biggest field hospital.
