… – Gennady Grigoryevich, on the eve of the EU, the tenth package of sanctions against Russia was put into effect. And among our citizens who are on the “black list” is Doctor Mira, the famous doctor Leonid Roshal. Unfortunately, I have not yet communicated with Leonid Mikhailovich. I know you treat him very well, you are close to him. How would you comment on this strange information?
– Well, she’s not weird… She’s terrible. And I can guess what was the reason for this decision.
– Allegedly, together with the All-Russian Popular Front (ONF), Roshal was involved in raising funds for the Donbass army. But when we spoke to him last November, Leonid Mikhailovich just recounted in some detail that he and his colleagues sent 300 bulletproof vests to Donetsk for doctors, paramedics and nurses. (cm.)
– And this, I think, is very timely help, the Donbass doctors really need it.
Just the day before yesterday, Ukronazis brought down an ambulance in Donetsk with a direct hit.
And Europe looks at him with closed eyes.
This is another confirmation that the European community has forgotten about all the laws, rights, rules that should protect doctors in the war zone.
And also, and those who help them, like my colleague, Dr. Roshal does.
And I would also remind the leaders of the European Union, especially those of Germany, how during the Great Patriotic War, our doctors, in besieged Leningrad, for 900 days, while there was a blockade, treated and saved wounded Germans of death. .
– This is, to some extent, relevant to the current situation…
– Then why am I saying this?
There is a medical code, a medical ethic that says that any injured person who needs help should receive it.
It is the doctor’s duty to do so.
Therefore, even if Leonid Mikhailovich went over to the other side and provided assistance there, he would not deserve condemnation.
But there was a case…
– Let me finish, and then you will interrupt me. Therefore, our Foreign Ministry needs to raise the question of whether the EU, which, unfortunately, today is degrading at the level of its leadership, has preserved at least elementary concepts of these canons.
And the main one is that the activities of doctors are not subject to condemnation in any way. This is an axiom, understand it, which has always been observed, in all times and in all ages.
But Roshal did not make any political statements, he was involved in helping the doctors…
– Gennady Grigorievich, I just wanted to remind our readers that Leonid Mikhailovich saved people in Nord-Ost when bandits captured this theater center. We also remember this with Leonid Mikhailovich … (see) Thank you very much for such a balanced comment. .
