LUHANSK, October 6. /TASS/. Ukrainian doctors refuse medical treatment to children from the troubled eastern Luhansk region due to political considerations, head of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) Igor Plotnitsky said on Monday.
“When signing peace agreements, we hoped that peace would calm people’s hearts, cool minds and bring the possibility to reconsider values and change ideology,” Plotnitsky said. “But unfortunately, it has not happened."
"What may be expected from a neighbor if he, violating medical ethics, refuses to provide treatment only due to political motives?" he asked. "How can relations be established with partners who believe politics play a much more important role than human life?”
Officials at the republic’s Health Ministry told TASS of a recent case when doctors at the Kharkiv-based Sitenko special clinic refused to take a two-year-old child for treatment.
