I will consult with the lawyers in the ministry on the issue of my resignation, because I have been appointed by the Prime Minister. The decision of the Health Commission is a precedent for me.

"The financial situation of "Pirogov" is not what is described by the director – at a profit. It has long been known that it is not good, so resort to borrowing to repay debts to creditors. The essential thing is that there is a violation of public procurement by a materially responsible person, there is nothing personal. I had to remove it after I received the report," he said.

In the words of Minister Hinkov, it is inexplicable that this case is so politicized, he described it as unprecedented. "These are serious financial violations. Instead of the director of "Pirogov" leaving, a wall of politicians stands in front of him, and the attacks are directed at the minister, even threatening the adoption of the budget. The reaction itself is unbalanced. Many directors have been changed over the years, this is normal, suddenly there was such a reaction. This is inexplicable to me. If it is proven that the data of the experts in the report are invented, I will resign," the health minister assured.
