The conflict in Bahusheuski oblast tuberculosis hospital in Vitsebsk region, is acquiring a greater publicity. The authorities are trying to calm the protests down by attempts to placate the most active protesters.

Neli Sipaila, the master of the tuberculosis hospital of Orsha, came to Natallia and Valeryi Drabysheuskis. She familiarized with the conditions in the hospital and informed the spouses about the danger they present to their nine-year-old daughter.

‘But when we were being signed out of the hospital’, Natallia Drabysheuskay says, ‘nobody thought about the danger to the child. Being ill, we can infect our daughter. Still, we have no human conditions – even hot water is absent.’

Then Natallia and Valeryi were summonsed by the officer of Vitsebsk oblast executive committee Pavel Hrydzen. ‘He reproached us that we had addressed the independent media with our problem. Then he promised to organize ambulatory treatment for me and proposed to place my husband (who is more ill than me) to Navayelenski hospital. According to him, now the necessary medicines will be brought to Valeryi from the hospital of Orsha every three days,’ said Natallia Drabysheuskaya.
