Today, Alexander Bastrykin, Chairman of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, and Igor Komissarov, his senior assistant, attended a special event dedicated to the 15th anniversary of the creation of the Research Institute for Emergency Children’s Surgery and Traumatology, headed by the World Children’s Doctor Leonid Roshal, MD, PhD.
Addressing the audience, Alexander Bastrykin sincerely congratulated Leonid Roshal and the entire staff of the institute with the anniversary date, noting their merits: “Each day you give hope to your patients and save dozens of lives. You show special tender and love to children injured during military operations. To recover one’s health is the most important task for you, and with honour you fulfil it with your hard work regardless of personal time, for there is nothing more precious than life!”
The Chairman of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation stressed that “thanks to the dedication and the expertise, care and attention of the staff of the Research Institute for Emergency Children’s Surgery and Traumatology they manage to recover health and bring to full life children, who were lucky to be saved and recovered only because of you. Your generosity knows no bounds: Vanya Voronov, who was seriously injured in an explosion of an ammunition; Pavel Arkhipov, who survived clinical death with inadequate medical care, and hundreds and thousands of other children, who literally got a second chance. And recently, at the request of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation Ministry of Health specialists together with Leonid Roshal conducted medical video and in-person consultations to help a seriously ill child being treated in Vologda, who suffered as a result of criminal actions.”
In addition, while in Roshal Hospital, Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia visited a life-challenged child, Vanya Krapivin from Arkhangelsk Region. The boy suffered severe injuries that caused disability, when he protected his mother from an attack of a drunken neighbour. Vanya is treated in the hospital repeatedly, and the doctors do their utmost to save his life and minimize the consequences of the major trauma. Alexander Bastrykin follows the child’s state in person.
At the event, Chairman of the Investigative Committee awarded Leonid Roshal and Valery Mitish, the director of the Emergency Children’s Surgery and Traumatology Research Institute, celebrating their invaluable contribution to healthcare, and delivered his gratitude for their active cooperation with the Investigative Committee on saving lives and health of children suffered serious and most serious offenses. Several employee of the Institute were awarded with medals “For Purity of Heart and Nobility of Actions” and “For Contribution”, as well as certificates of acknowledgement, letters of gratitude and memorable gifts.
Leonid Roshal thanked Chairman of the Investigative Committee for the actual help his officers provide to injured children. “Your commitment to medical aid, recovery of Vanya Voronov, as well as dozens of children from the South-West Ukraine treated in our hospital, is highly praised,” he noted.
Roshal said that “the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation and doctors are those who are there when you need help”.
