On Wednesday, chief physicians from more than a dozen specialised facilities in various Russian cities – including Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Sochi – issued an "open letter" to a dozen high profile dissenters. They include the leader of Russia's largest opposition party, veteran Communist Gennady Zyuganov, and the chairman of "Fair Russia" Sergei Mironov, another key member of parliament.
The politicians, along with other famous faces from the world of television and the arts, have been singled out due to their criticism of the government’s vaccination campaign. The doctors want them to visit their facilities to see life within the ‘Red Zones’, where seriously ill patients are being treated during the pandemic.
“We are aware of your position on the vaccination of Russian citizens against Covid-19,” the doctors, including Denis Protsenko, the chief physician at Moscow’s main infections hospital Kommunarka, wrote.
The doctors promised to find time in their busy schedules to “give you all a tour around the ‘Red Zones’, Intensive Care Units (ICU) and morbid anatomy departments of our hospitals.”
“You might change your position after that and fewer people will die,” they said, adding that the people they invited have vast audiences.
