highly politicized and the wellbeing of patients is overlooked. something about this area is highly politicized which means this is cone questions all your keys that being transferred and actually mill all mean medical practice 'd is not taking place in my view is not enough research there's not enough interest in the downside of what's going on there's not enough scrutiny all. 'd of the issue of consent and i think we need an independent regulatory recorder that would say 'd the least controversial area and not reduce the trustees to being go with 'd the approach runs lobby's it's not all it's not any of the need necessarily relies to what extent the political forces draw anything what's going 'd on in this area.

8:18 am
russian air force of bombing hospitals indiscriminately in syria to crush a government opposition now what evidence does the new york times claim to have well unpublished radio recordings that were apparently collected by ordinary residents in the area and anonymous witnesses who claim to have identified the planes carrying out the bombings as russian now we have received a response from the russian defense ministry which says that the publication actually fell the misinformation. 1st of all we'd like to express our regret that a major news outlet has fallen victim to the minute of terrorists and the british intelligence services the real conditions of life in the deescalation zone this on their allocated to control a terrorist group related to. a very different from what the new york times imagine is them to be now the ministry mentioned a number of problems with this idea of radio recordings number one the russian pilots didn't don't communicate bombing targets over radio and number 2 the gadgets
