Reform in education
Press releases and
of budget funding for treatment of cancer patients
Statement by the Social Democratic
Faction of the Russian United Democratic Party YABLOKO,
December 12, 2012.
We are outraged by the statement made
by Maxim Mishchenko, leader of the [pro-Kremlin] Young
Russia movement, on the need to reduce budget expenditure
on treatment of cancer patients. The former MP from
the United Russia faction intends to introduce his
criminal initiative at the hearings of the Public
Chamber devoted to paid medical services, after which
he intends to send the draft to the Ministry of Healthcare.
We regard the initiative proposed
by the leader of United Russia's youth organisation
as an open manifestation of fascism and violation
of the Constitution of the Russian Federation guaranteeing
all citizens the right to life and free health care.
We demand that the ruling party stop
its mockery of Russia’s people and the attack
on the right of citizens to high-quality free education
and free health care, as well as curbing of the social
responsibilities of the state taking place against
the background of an unprecedented in Russia's history
growth of oil and gas revenues...
