Dubyna, Yanukovych, and the guy from the Artek camp - they are all getting treatment (RUS) at Feofania hospital right now.

Accidentally, a dear friend of mine sent me a link to this story (RUS) last week: in the past two months, the state has spent about 50 million hryvnias on re-equipping Feofania.

That's 100 times the amount allotted for TB and HIV/AIDS prevention in the 2009 budget (500,000 hryvnias), according to the piece.

340,000 hryvnias has been spent on curtains - and 160,000 hryvnias on Venetian blinds.

I've no idea what the exchange rate is now - and I don't think it's relevant in this context.

  1. I'd say the "Regional Patient" should check into a regional hospital to test the value he has added to Ukraine's public health care.

    By now, it seems that his hunting colleague's force majeure experience with our public health care system left that system in no better shape.
