On 4 July, I had a meeting with the team of Mariupol municipal hospital No.1.

From the very beginning, our entire team of the Opposition Bloc voted against the implementation of the medical reform. Many well-known healthcare professionals do not support those changes that the current reform is bringing. In the first turn, it concerns low wages of medical workers. We believe that finances and authority for organization of medical services should be passed over to local self-government.

A striking example of how medical services are organized at the local level is the Mariupol Cardiology Centre. Now advanced operations are carried out and dozens of lives are saved in Mariupol. We will continue supporting Mariupol's healthcare sector.
