“Yevgeny was discharged from hospital three days ago, he is feeling well, medics say his health is out of any risk,” he said, adding that Manilov was on a rigid diet and had even quitted smoking. “He will be undergoing a rehabilitation course for two or three weeks more, after which he will be able to be back at work.”
