State of maimed soldier Andrei Sychev is on the verge of death. Blood infection grows progressively worse. The situation could be prevented if young man was rendered medical treatment on time.
Servicemen search for guilty and it is most likely they will be found among military doctors, who refused to send Sychev to hospital for 4 days. It is a common situation when doctors have to choose between personal well-being and health of soldiers under pressure of command concealing facts of beating in military units.
Command-in-chief of land troops Vladimir Moltensky has already announced about criminal negligence committed by military doctors: "A serviceman complained on pain in legs but didn`t get appropriate medical help. Taking the danger of illness into consideration soldier needed urgent hospitalization. This way tragedy could be avoided".
History of soldier Andrei Sychev demonstrated that military doctors ignore the sick when matter concerns image of military unit. After drunk elder servicemen tortured Sychev during New Year holidays necrosis developed on his legs. He didn`t get necessary medical treatment for a week.
Andrei Sychev spent 2 days in hospital. He was not operated because doctors were on vacation till January 10. Andrei was only given injections of antibiotics. Doctors in hospital didn`t know what to do with the soldier and sent him to Ambulance hospital for consultation. But there he was operated only several days later.
"We went to Chelyabinsk military hospital but nobody spoke to us, - said the sister of soldier. - And doctor on duty said that there were no traces of ropes on Andrei`s legs".
As a result both legs and genitals were amputated because of necrosis. Then gangrene spread to arm and soldier was amputated a finger.
At present moment Sychev has blood poisoning. "The temperature reached 40 degrees", - said the sister of victim.
