MOSCOW, October 22. / TASS /. Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin admitted that he admires the high qualifications, responsibility and strength of character of Russian doctors fighting the coronavirus.
"Today doctors, paramedics, nurses, orderlies are really at the forefront, every day they save hundreds of human lives, fight death in the red zone without sleep, without rest, do not see their own family for a long time, help not only patients with coronavirus, but also with others no less dangerous diseases, "the Prime Minister said at the ceremony of presenting state awards to medical workers. In his opinion, "not everyone can do such work - it requires high qualifications, full dedication, responsibility and strong character, because every day it is emotionally difficult to see human suffering, and you also need to find kind words for each patient."
"We are sincerely proud and admire your courage, fortitude. Without you, your dedication, it is impossible to defeat the coronavirus, and we all appreciate you very much," the head of the Cabinet of Ministers addressed to the medical workers. He assured that the doctors who "gave their lives to save the sick" will also remain forever in the memory.
Mishustin thanked all medical workers who "take care of the health of Russians every day, for choosing medicine as a matter of life and giving it all their energy, knowledge and time." According to the Prime Minister, "this is a very difficult and important profession." "Whatever position the medical workers occupy, they are always at the post, ready to help at any moment," the Prime Minister is sure.
The Prime Minister wished the Russian doctors to have only victories in their daily struggle for the lives of their patients.
"Nikolai Ivanovich Pirogov, a Russian surgeon, after whom the order we are presenting is named, said that living in this world means constantly fighting and constantly winning. You are fighting not even for your own life, but for the lives of people who trust you, providing medical care, working on medicines, conducting research. This is doubly difficult. Let your struggle only have victories without defeats, "Mishustin said.
He wished all the awardees good health, success, prosperity, new professional achievements. "And so that people do not get sick," the head of government added to the wishes.
