Doctors are allowed to prescribe people drugs only Russian production (which usually is not effective). Sometimes doctors can whisper to tell: “If possible, obtain Ukrainian counterpart, but I never told you that…” Very often it happens that the person needs emergency surgery, and his record in turn: “there will Come three months later”. What he maybe it’s time to die, nobody cares,” he said.
The head of the Majlis added that the treatment Crimeans go to the unoccupied territory of Ukraine.
“All who have the opportunity, try to go for treatment on the mainland Ukraine, buy here in the first place medicines and products, because they are cheaper and better Russian,” – said Dzhemilev.
