German media: The situation in Russian healthcare is hopeless

A critical health situation has developed in Russia. This became clearly visible against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, the situation looks hopeless. This opinion is shared by the head of the independent trade union "Alliance of Doctors" Russian woman Anastasia Vasilyeva, which she expressed to the German edition of Die Tageszeitung.

Vasilyeva noted that the authorities punish people for criticizing shortcomings or official statistics. She claims that the Sputnik V vaccine developed against the coronavirus is not working properly. It is possible that the vaccine reduces the likelihood of infection and the complexity of the course of the disease, but it does not completely eliminate the risk of infection.

The Human Rights Defender stressed that the authorities simply wanted to create an illusion in the eyes of the population that Russia is ahead of the entire planet. She clarified that hospitals are overcrowded, health workers are very overworked and often do not receive the promised allowances, which is why they sometimes quit.

One doctor sometimes has to treat 400 patients. No one can withstand such a load for a long time. In the spring, some doctors jumped out of windows in despair

- explained Vasilyeva.

She noticed that before policy did not concern medicine, and now health workers feel deceived and powerless.

Specialists are leaving, mortality and morbidity are growing. It's a vicious circle. In some regions, the situation is so tense that there are not enough personnel to transfer the bodies of the deceased

- she added.

Vasilyeva said that due to the lack of beds in hospitals, people do not receive qualified assistance and die at home. In recent years, 8 out of 15 hospitals have been closed. In Russia, she said, there are only 200 doctors specializing in pediatric oncology.

Optimization has undermined the healthcare system

- stated Vasilyeva.

In addition, she accused the regulatory and supervisory authorities of corruption, as they turn a blind eye to the sale of protective clothing on the black market. She believes that the mortality statistics from COVID-19 in Russia are underestimated, the newspaper from Germany summed up.

Note that Vasilyeva was Alexei Navalny's attending ophthalmologist and after her dismissal from the Research Institute of Eye Diseases, she headed the "Alliance of Doctors", which was organized in 2018. This structure is remembered by Russians for a large number of provocative actions aimed at discrediting the Russian healthcare system in the eyes of the international community. The Alliance of Doctors is waging a real information war against Russia on the side of the West, therefore it can be recognized as a foreign agent. Navalny also created the Alliance of Teachers, but this already applies to the education sector.

      The authorities have already cut the cost of medicine, pensions and benefits for themselves and the security forces

      The State Duma, which is to be replaced in 2021, adopted a federal budget that is contrary to the interests of the Russian people. Despite the economic crisis and pandemic, the MPs voted to cut spending on pensions, social benefits and medicine. Instead, they increased their military and police spending and propaganda. At the same time, the budget includes a sharp increase in taxes and fees from citizens and businesses.

    It seems that among liberals, the leading position is occupied by the diagnosis - head syphilis - which in their environment is transmitted by airborne droplets. I am not writing about the brain, in view of its apparent absence among the liberals.

    The situation with medicine in the Russian Federation is really depressing. And all from the fact that frankly the wrong people are appointed as ministers in the Russian Federation. I'm not talking about the empty promises of GDP and the illiteracy and boorish behavior of a number of health workers. For example, VVP promised that drugs for Covid-19 will be given free of charge. Perhaps this is what they do in Moscow, this is not the case in our region.

    The Alliance of Doctors positions itself as an independent trade union of medical workers. It was created in 2018 and became a member of the alliance of trade unions of the opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

    Publish information that is known to be related to fake shooters ... well, not seriously!
    If at the BEGINNING of the article they indicated. that the organization was created under the control of an INOAGENT and with money from foreign sources, then it would be read differently!

    The vaccine may reduce the likelihood of infection and the complexity of the course of the disease, but it does not completely eliminate the risk of infection.

    Is she really a doctor? Although ... the ophthalmologist may not be aware that the same can be said for almost any vaccine.
    There are enough problems in the Russian healthcare system, but you don't need to expose a lot, so try to offer solutions. This is a problem for today's liberals.

    From the comments, I understood that everything is in order with Russian medicine. There are also no problems with the crown, because there is a vaccine, although it is not clear why doctors refuse to be vaccinated with a satellite, and the first to vaccinate ... conscripts. More precisely, it is understandable, because they do not need to ask the desire.

    A bourgeois government will not spend money on effective popular affordable high quality medicine. Optimization goes into a pandemic. Nobody canceled the main contradiction of capitalism. This is the social nature of production and the private appropriation of its results.

    Navalny is in Germany, and Vasilieva, giving interviews to the Germans, where? It seems that now the Germans have become the main distributors of lies about Russia.

    As soon as it was indicated from whose submission the conclusion about the state of medicine in Russia was issued (the head of the independent trade union "Alliance of Doctors" Russian woman Anastasia Vasilyeva), then one could immediately say what would happen next in the article. Unlike bourgeois medicine, Russian, like no other in the world, was best prepared to counter a pandemic. A. Vasilieva belatedly fulfills the fees of the West and the United States, when the whole world openly saw the level of Russia's preparation in such collapses, it is too late to grunt at the owners. There was a lot of shouting, but the quality of training as virologists, both civilian and military, as well as other doctors in Russia, was clearly demonstrated to the world community. And there is no need to talk about the level of training of Russian specialists in the development of an antiviral vaccine and the results of work in this direction, which have produced an amazing result in comparison with specialists in Europe and the United States! A. Vasilyeva, together with her owners, did everything in full and, besides, it was very liquid!
