IZHEVSK, November 25, 16:08 /ITAR-TASS/. Mikhail Kalashnikov, the designer of world-known guns, who was hospitalized in the city of Izhevsk on November 17, remains in the intensive care unit. He is in stable condition.
His son Viktor Kalashnikov told Itar-Tass on Monday that access of visitors to the patient was strictly limited and he was not allowed to visit his father yet.
The patient is in stable condition, the press service of the Health Ministry of the Republic of Udmurtia told Itar-Tass.
Earlier, the republic's Health Minister Vladimir Muzlov said Kalashnikov had stomach vascular bleeding. According to experts, recovery in such a case may take long time. It is early to say about discharge from the hospital, the minister said.
Kalashnikov, who is 94 years old, was taken to the intensive care unit in the republic’s cardiology centre when his health condition worsened. He undergoes treatment and diagnostic procedures now.
The press service of the Kalashnikov Concern said the gun designer was hospitalized as planned. He is taken to hospital two to three times a year for medical examination and treatment to support his health, the company's press secretary Yelena Filatova said.
Kalashnikov designed his world-known and immensely popular assault gun in 1947. Since then, more than 70 million units of all its modifications have been produced in the world. His AK guns are in service in more than 100 countries.
