Tanks for Kidneys

'Doctors Without Borders' appeared in Ukraine in 2015. However, after the international charity – which provides humanitarian medical care for people in conflict zones – entered the region, very few people seemed enthusiastic. Subsequently, claims have emerged that 'Doctors Without Borders' may have been tied to the phenomenon of the so-called “ripper doctors.” And the allegations are not entirely new. Six years after the Kosovo war, former prosecutor of the Hague Tribunal, Carla Del Ponte, released a book accusing 'Doctors Without Borders' of human organ trafficking in Kosovo. ‘Hiding under the guise of a humanitarian mission, they engage in the deadly crime of organ trafficking, and made big money doing it’, claims Goran Petronijević, an international lawyer from Serbia. The documentary sheds light on the alarming situation surrounding organ trafficking, and explores parallels between events in Kosovo and in Ukraine.
