Any
interruption of supply of medicine is life-threatening, patients say.

“A
patient needs to get fresh dialysis medication every 12 hours or so. If he
doesn’t, he starts to die slowly,” says Andriy Barko, one of the upset patients.
“As of September, the delivery of my medications became irregular. It’s like
I’m on the hook, not knowing if I get my medicine on time.”

Tetiana
Olkhovych says that her husband Maksym Olkhovych has had troubles getting his
daily medication for almost two months and that some 40 other patients she’s in
contact with experienced similar problem. “For four days in August he didn’t
have any medicine at all. We asked other patients, who had some spare packages,
for help,” Tetiana says.
