“Five applications by the bone marrow transplantation department doctors filed for dismissal with different wordings,” RIA Novosti quoted Stilidi as saying.

He emphasized that the doctors were not fired.

Earlier it was reported that pediatric oncologists accused the new leadership of the Blokhin cancer center of persecution and threatened with their dismissal.

The Kremlin said that the Ministry of Health is investigating the situation.

The Ministry of Health claims doctors consider unjustified. The Office informed about the creation of the commission after the receipt of the appeal.
