They called me because I'm in the donor database, and they asked me to donate blood for a kid suffering from cancer. I went there and spent two hours standing in line just to take a blood test — to find out if I’m a good match for this kid as a donor. And you know why? It’s because the moms there told me what kind of conditions they have in that miserable oncological center at Lomonosov St — how they live there in gloom, how they are purposefully mistreated — and that the impression it creates is that they [hospital personnel] do it to get as many kids as possible dying and freeing up beds. Otherwise, expedient donation would have been streamlined in this country a long time ago.
Instead, everything is being done to make the person who came here in the morning to take a blood test never come back — so that the moms will never find those donors, because there’s hardly a person who can afford to spend more than two hours just to take a half-minute blood test. They still make handwritten medical records there. Can’t the Ministry of Health Care scramble up 200 bucks for a vintage PC? Can’t this country have a computerized database? What else is there to think but that hidden cannibalism is at work? For…where do these people go? Nobody wants them.
Our authorities care about hospitals only when some other Kushnaryov dies at Izyum rayon (county) hospital. Short of that, nobody cares about it, because if the Health Care Minister’s kid gets cancer, he will not be treated at Lomonosov St. He will be treated at the world’s best clinics. That’s how we live.

Tetyana Montyan surprised everyone when she chose to represent Vasyl Tsushko in court. She obviously places a high value on her time, but the case she makes in this report has stood the test of time.
Our men would rather take part in breakaleg “free Rudy” rescue raids than take a trip to the nearest public hospital and see what it’s like.
We know that Rudy and Shufry have private clinics at their disposal. But what about those countryside folks, whose villages NUNS promised to equip with ambulances? How many ambulances have been delivered?
