During the occupation of Kherson by Russian troops, some Russians turned to local doctors to give them fake diagnoses. So the occupiers sought to escape from the front.

As written The Wall Street Journal, the managers of the Athanasius and Olga Tropiny city clinical hospital told journalists about these facts. It is noted that even after the occupation of Kherson, the chief doctor Leonid Remiga and other staff maintained a pro-Ukrainian position and refused to cooperate with the occupiers. They said that the hospital was closed for quarantine due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

According to the publication, the Russians also tried to gain Ramiza’s trust with the help of the FSB, which offered any help. However, the efforts of the occupiers turned out to be in vain.

In June 2021, the head doctor of the institution was summoned to the so-called Minister of Health of the Kherson Region, Vadym Ilmiyev. He accused Remiga of an anti-Russian position.

After that, the occupiers put head nurse Larisa Maleta in charge of the hospital, and they planned to arrest the man. However, the doctor had a stroke and was hospitalized.

The publication writes that later Maleta and Remiga agreed that the woman would allegedly cooperate with the occupiers, having previously informed the SBU about it so that she would not be considered a collaborator. However, in August, Maleta left the city, and Remiga himself ran away from the hospital to a relative.

It is known that in the same month, the Russian occupiers constantly came to the hospital and asked the doctors to give them fake diagnoses so that they would not go to the front.

“One soldier said that he had problems with his knees, said Andriy Koksharov, head of the Tropinka trauma department. The scan showed that there was nothing serious, but the soldier asked Dr. Koksharov to exaggerate,” the publication writes.

Dr. Koksharov wrote that he has arthritis and needs to leave the front.

“The fewer of them, the better. I was ready to prescribe these diagnoses for the entire army,” the doctor noted.
