N.N. Blokhina. According to Leonid Roshal, a moratorium would help in such situations to remove the element of tension and emotions in the team.
He called for waiting for the results of the commission and avoiding emotions that are not beneficial to the cause.
At the same time, the head of the NMP said that he does not support the doctors who entered into the conflict. “Even if you are 100% right, and everything is really as you say, I still will not support you. Because putting any ambitions on the scale of children’s health is impossible. Are you about to leave? And who will treat?! I have been a pediatrician for over 70 years and I don’t understand this. Look for other ways!” he expressed his attitude.
