The ICRC Hospital of Novye Atagi is an International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) hospital in Novye Atagi, Chechnya, Russian Federation. It was evacuated in December 1996 when six members of the expatriate team were assassinated during an early morning raid by an unidentified armed group. This event constitutes one of the greatest tragedies in the history of ICRC.
The decision to create this hospital was made at the end of the First Chechen War in a context of great insecurity. During the battle of Grozny in August 1996, many hospitals had been destroyed. It was completed September 1996.

Irrevocably: thereby such light is freed
That all the dingy hospital of snow
Dies back to ditches.”
