Nikolai Agutin, 85, the father of Leonid Agutin, is horrified by the insolence of the pharmacy owners. Recently, he has not appeared in public. Due to the pandemic, the musician moved to a country cottage. Every day he starts with taking medication.
- I have half a table of all kinds of pills, - says Nikolai Agutin. - Some of them, due to my age, need to be taken twice a day: in the morning and in the evening. And you have to pay for everything.
Agutin Sr. is horrified by the prices. They grow every day! - Look what a monopoly of pharmaceuticals we have! The man sighs. - It's horror. These people need a serious tribunal. I don’t understand: they are called upon to heal or destroy people? Most likely the second. You can't think of anything else. I watch a story on TV: the boy is in such a state that if he is not injected with medicine, he will die. They ask for help. But when they said how much the medicine he needed to live, I felt bad. One ampoule costs 150 million rubles. Where to get such funds? Shoot pharmacists on the spot! This is horror.
- Now they have invented a remedy for coronavirus, - continues the father of Leonid Agutin. - It costs more than 10 thousand rubles. Tell me, how can our retirees buy it? Where can they get that kind of money? Probably, there should be some kind of reform. Corporations have bought laboratories for themselves and set their own prices.
Sadalsky: 12 thousand for the cure for covid is a shame for the authorities. Let the poor die?
I have been living for a very long time, - sighs Agutin Sr. - When the war began, I was six years old. Then there were no potent drugs, but people somehow survived. We didn't have any special infections. I don't remember the moment when the flu hit everyone. It seems that someone is now deliberately inventing new viruses in order to cash in on treatment for diseases later.
