Dr. Simon Matskeplishvili, a leading Russian Cardiologist
At the beginning of the 20th century Russian lawyer Anatoly Konin, proposed a law on Euthanasia. But it has never been adopted. Today this issue is being discussed in Russia once again. More and more groups around the world are demanding "The right to Die with Dignity" for the seriously ill, those who are doomed, anyway, and can no longer bare the severe suffering. But the society and the authorities disagree to live and let die. Why? Is Russia ready to - at least - start discussing the matter? The guest to answer theses questions today is a leading Russian Cardiologist, Dr. Simon Matskeplishvili.
