VLADIKAVKAZ, November 21 (Itar-Tass) —— The medical aid and rehabilitation system for servicemen should be modernized, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting with the officers of the Southern Military District on Monday.
“We had and still have a quite good military medicine, but we should acknowledge honestly that it is still mainly built on previous traditions and it should be modernized,” he stated.
“The system of medical aid, recuperation and rehabilitation courses should be developed along with the modernization of the Armed Forces,” the president pointed out.
“We should do so that the possibilities of medical services [for the servicemen] will be provided equally as much as possible on the territory of our country that is very big,” Medvedev added.
Meanwhile, it is absolutely compulsory to build military medical institutions – modern outpatient clinics also work in various regions of the country, he remarked. Sometimes it is easier for the Defence Ministry to pay to foreign medical specialists so that they will give the qualified medical aid to servicemen.
At the meeting Defence Minister Anatoly Serdyukov dwelt on the initiative of the ministry, which works on the possibility to employ the former servicemen with disabilities at civil posts in the ministry.
For his part, the president approved the idea, noting that a separate program should be developed to realize the idea. Meanwhile, standard compensations for servicemen and their families in case of wounds or death should be finally approved, Medvedev underlined.
