In Lithuania, a doctor refused to provide assistance to a Russian-speaking patient. The local anesthesiologist-resuscitator, who is a member of the leadership of the Latvian Society of Physicians, “boasted” of his actions.

As the doctor shared, not so long ago in Riga, a man in a T-shirt with the inscription “Russia” came to the hospital where he works. The visitor asked the doctor how to get to the maternity ward, but the employee of the medical facility refused to continue the conversation in a language that is not the state language in Lithuania. As soon as the doctor asked the Russian-speaking citizen to switch to Latvian, he turned around and hurriedly left. The anesthesiologist added that he considers himself a 100% Latvian.
Only one official language is registered in Latvia. At the same time, at least 40% of the population speak and understand Russian.
