Omsk residents to pay for emergency aid?
A resident of Omsk told about the demand to pay for refueling an ambulance car for the father's transfer from the village to the hospital. As a result, her parents paid 500 rubles ($9) to get her father to the hospital.
A resident of Omsk, Elena Perfilieva, wrote at the public page of health clinic Omsk in the VKontakte social network about the ambulance staff’s demand to pay for refueling the car during her father's transferring to the hospital.
Perfilieva explains that she lives in Omsk, and her parents live in the village of Kutyrly in the Kolosovsky district of the region. She writes that her father "became ill, had internal bleeding, needed emergency hospitalization," but an ambulance staff told her that the only car "is in a breakdown state and there is no gasoline at all." "And if you need to see us, pay for gasoline, if there is no money, it’s your problem!!!" the girl writes.
As a result, her parents paid 500 rubles to get her father to the hospital. "And there are no syringes, no medicine, no doctors. Awful medicine in villages!" Perfilieva complains.
After the post was published, the FlashSiberia edition sent a request to the regional government; they replied that " the Ministry of Health of the Omsk region will check this information, an official investigation has been scheduled."
In Kabardino-Balkaria, an officer of Rospotrebnadzor (Federal Service on Customers' Rights Protection and Human Well-being Surveillance) had received a bribe for protection. The businessman, who had given the bribe, has turned to police.
In the last two years, the management of SK Balt-Stroy Limited Liability Company was involved into two criminal cases pertaining to embezzlements in the Ministry of Culture (Restorers’ case) and embezzlements during the construction of Vladimir Putin’s residence in Novo-Ogarevo. However, this hasn’t affected the company’s business affairs in any way. Governmental contracts with SK Balt-Stroy are extended on a regular basis. Structures affiliated with the company have been recently awarded a contract to restore the Kremlin towers. The CrimeRussia was figuring out why do the disreputable restorers still continue working in the Kremlin?
