Настоящее Время: Дети с раком вынуждены лечиться в больнице с плесенью. Новое здание больницы в Бишкеке не построили в срок


В Кыргызстане сразу несколько больниц и клиник, которые давно должны были начать принимать пациентов, стоят недостроенными. Власти уверяют, что денег на завершение работ нет. И из-за этого объекты медленно разрушаются.
Тесные коридорчики, палаты на четыре человека, трещины на стенах. Так живет единственная онкологическая больница для детей в Бишкеке. Для маленьких пациентов все это не просто неудобства, а серьезный риск для здоровья.
“Дети у нас находятся на первом этаже очень старого здания. Поскольку там идет грибковое поражение стен, мы не можем им проводить высокодозную химиотерапию. Они очень плохо ее переносят. И вся вот эта побочная инфекция, она не дает детям излечиться”, – говорит замдиректора Центра онкологии Бактыгуль Султангазиева.
Еще три года назад больных раком детей должны были перевести в новое здание по соседству. Правительство выделило первый транш, на стройплощадке закипела работа. Но после смены президента процесс заглох.
“К сожалению, финансирование потом приостановилось, к 2017-му и началу 2018-го практически стройка приостановилась. Все три года она стоит в одном и том же положении, каркасном состоянии”, – говорит Султангазиева.
Сейчас из запланированных семи этажей детской онкобольницы видны лишь очертания первых четырех. Замдиректора департамента гражданского строительства Жумабай Каримжанов говорит, что работу здесь можно закончить буквально за полгода, но на это нет денег.
“Решение пока не принято. В этом году будет предусмотрено, не будет, пока еще не известно. Но я думаю, если выделят деньги, мы начнем заново строить эту больницу”, – сказал он.
Таких историй с затянувшимся строительством, как в случае детской онкоклиники, в Кыргызстане наберется не меньше пяти. Городская туберкулезная больница за несколько лет не обзавелась даже фундаментом, еще два года назад должны были сдать в эксплуатацию этот перинатальный центр. Но он по-прежнему пустует.
Корпус детской больницы в Бишкеке начали возводить еще в советские годы. Но закончить не успели. С тех пор правительство несколько раз вспоминало про стройку, правда, денег завершить ее так и не нашли. Это стало самым старым медицинским долгостроем в Кыргызстане.
Далеко не каждая больница или медцентр остались недостроенными из-за нехватки средств в бюджете, уверен эксперт в области медицины и глава ассоциации “Партнерская сеть” Айбар Султангазиев. Многие из них, как, например, перинатальный центр, должны были возводить за счет спонсоров. Но помешали коррупционные скандалы.
“Там очень серьезно была завышена сметная стоимость. Ну, например, один кирпич, который стоит на рынке 7 сомов, там стоил 70 сомов. В 10 раз превышение. Это приводило к тому, что начинали проверять различные фискальные органы – финполиция, АКС ГКНБ, – изымали документы, не проплачивали подрядчикам. Подрядчики останавливали работу и так далее”, – говорит он.
Если бы все начатые стройки завершили по плану, пик пандемии коронавируса Кыргызстан мог бы пережить намного легче, уверен Султангазиев. Но вместо этого страна просто теряет вложенные в больницы деньги – пока они остаются бесхозными и постепенно рушатся.

Voice of America – English: Dutch Prime Minister Fights for Political Life in Tough Debate


Caretaker Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte fought for his political life Thursday in a bitter parliamentary debate about the country’s derailed process of forming a new ruling coalition following an election last month.

Rutte’s conservative party, known by its Dutch acronym VVD, won the most seats in parliament in the vote, putting him in line to form his fourth governing coalition and possibly become the country’s longest-serving prime minister.

That looked a long way off Thursday as lawmakers accused him of trying to sideline a popular lawmaker, a charge that Rutte denies.

Negotiations halted a week ago after one of the two officials leading the coalition talks tested positive for COVID-19 and was photographed carrying notes laying out details of the talks.

Sigrid Kaag, leader of the centrist D66 party that finished second in elections last month, right, gestures during a debate in parliament in The Hague, Netherlands, early Friday, April 2, 2021.

Among the text was a line saying: “Position Omtzigt, function elsewhere.” That was a reference to lawmaker Pieter Omtzigt of the Christian Democrat Appeal party, who, with his tough questions, has long been a thorn in the side of the government.

After the note was photographed, Rutte told reporters last week that he had not discussed Omtzigt in his coalition talks. But according to notes made by civil servants that were published Thursday, Rutte did talk about the lawmaker.

Rutte told the ensuing debate that he did not remember that part of the discussion and had answered reporters’ questions “in good conscience.”

“I am not standing here lying. I am telling the truth,” Rutte said.

One of the officials who led the coalition talks, caretaker Interior Minister Kajsa Ollongren, also told lawmakers that she did not recall discussing Omtzigt with Rutte, saying that it was the first of 17 separate discussions with party leaders.

“We didn’t speak with anybody, with none of the party leaders about a function elsewhere for Mr. Omtzigt,” she said as the hourslong debate extended deep into the night.

The debate around the coalition talks and Rutte’s leadership comes as the Netherlands is battling rising coronavirus infections despite a monthslong lockdown. Rutte’s popularity soared last year as he was seen as a steady hand steering the Netherlands through the coronavirus crisis, but it ebbed as the March election approached.

Opposition lawmaker Geert Wilders demanded that Rutte step down immediately and called for a motion of no confidence.

“Don’t you realize that your time is up?” Wilders said.

Omtzigt was not present for the debate between party leaders. He is taking time off, after complaining of exhaustion.

Sigrid Kaag, leader of the centrist D66 party, which finished second in the election, said she had seen a “pattern of forgetfulness, amnesia” from Rutte over his more than a decade in office.

“How can you, in the greatest crisis that we face in the Netherlands, restore the trust that has again been damaged?” Kaag asked.

Voice of America – English: Daughter: Bystander Disrupted Attack on Asian American Woman


The daughter of an Asian American woman attacked in New York City said Thursday that a person not seen on surveillance video helped the woman by screaming to distract her assailant while others watched and did nothing to intervene.

Elizabeth Kari, writing on a fundraising webpage she set up for her mother’s care, said the bystander was across the street when a man accosted 65-year-old Vilma Kari, kicked her in the stomach, knocked her to ground and repeatedly stomped on her face late Monday morning near Times Square.

The person, who has remained anonymous, “yelled and screamed to get the assailant’s attention,” Elizabeth Kari wrote. Fundraising service GoFundMe verified the authenticity of the webpage. The Associated Press has been unable to reach the Karis for comment. A message seeking an interview was left with Elizabeth Kari.

“I want to THANK YOU for stepping in and doing the right thing,” she wrote. “This gesture of action is what we need in our world right now. I hope one day, my mom and I can thank you personally.”

Brandon Elliot, a 38-year-old parolee convicted of killing his mother nearly two decades ago, was charged Wednesday with assault and attempted assault as a hate crime. His lawyers urged the public to “reserve judgment until all the facts are presented in court.”

The attack, among the latest in a national spike in anti-Asian hate crimes, drew widespread condemnation and raised alarms about what appeared to be the failure of bystanders to help. Police said no one called 911 and that patrol officers driving by came upon Vilma Kari after she was assaulted.

Vilma Kari, who emigrated from the Philippines several decades ago, suffered serious injuries, including a fractured pelvis. She was discharged from the hospital Tuesday and is “safe and in good spirits,” her daughter said.

“Although the healing process will not be easy, she has always been a resilient role model for me,” Elizabeth Kari wrote. “We are hopeful that in time, she will make a full recovery.”

Vilma Kari was attacked outside a luxury apartment building while walking to church. Her Facebook profile features a photo showing St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City.

Two workers in the building’s lobby were seen on surveillance video watching the violence but doing nothing to help her. The video shows one of the workers closing the building’s door as she lay on the ground about 10 seconds after the attacker started to walk away. The building’s management company said the workers were suspended pending an investigation.

A widely seen snippet of the video ended as the attacker was walking away. Elizabeth Kari wrote Thursday that the man was crossing the street and heading toward the bystander who screamed at him. That person has remained anonymous, she said.

The workers’ union, SEIU 32BJ, said Wednesday that the workers waited until the attacker walked away to check on Vilma Kari and flag down a nearby patrol car because they thought he had a knife.

A longer version of the surveillance video showed the workers, identified by their union as doormen, waiting about 40 seconds before they went outside and approached her. About a minute after that, the video shows a police car pulling up. The workers and officers are seen with her on the sidewalk for several more minutes before the video cuts off.

Elizabeth Kari wrote that aside from her care, her mother wants to donate some of the fundraiser’s proceeds to support other victims and help organizations that raise awareness and work to prevent anti-Asian American hate crimes. Nearly $100,000 was raised in less than a day — far exceeding the goal of $20,000.
