Employees of health care institutions have not been paid for months, and the Ministry of Health spends huge sums on trips to London, - Ihor Shurma

The Ministry of Health has sent its employees to study in London for borrowed money of the World Bank provided to Ukraine for the development of the health care system. This was stated by MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC Ihor Shurma from the rostrum of the parliament. “This is the height of cynicism, when the Ministry of Health spends UAH 800 thousand for the trip of unqualified employees requiring specialized education. This is shame and disgrace,” the oppositionist was indignant.

At the same time, the MP reminded that the development programs of health care institutes are being ignored, and more than two thousand research workers have not been paid for three months, without being able to feed their families.

“The current authorities have driven the country to the point that many good specialists are leaving for Europe in search of earnings. The indignation of Ukrainians regarding the policies of President Petro Poroshenko and the government of Volodymyr Groysman, who being engaged in populism, groundlessly declare the success of the country, is absolutely understandable,” the MP added.

Ihor Shurma also urged President Poroshenko to draw attention to the initiative of the leadership of the Ministry of Health, which refuses to enter into a contract with the Director of the Heart Institute Borys Todurov.

“Your faction unanimously supported the appointment of world-famous cardiac surgeon Borys Todurov as Director of the Heart Institute. And now, the leadership of the Ministry of Health, violating the legal procedure, has deliberately not entered into a contract with him for three months,” said Ihor Shurma, addressing the Head of State.
