President Putin on financing heart surgery

During his today's meeting with the staff of the Bakulev cardio-vascular surgery centre, President Putin promised to settle the problem of increasing the clinic's financing.

At the same time, Vladimir Putin pointed out that "during the past two years (of his presidency) he had enough experience of such meetings and does not give empty promises, even if some people are inclined to over-dramatize the situation." Nevertheless, the president stressed that the question of increasing the financing is important, since it is connected with human lives.

Putin also noted that although in the past few years the birth rate has been going up in Russia, the population situation still causes serious concern. Incidentally, said the president, instances when the death rate exceeds the birth rate are characteristic for many post-industrial countries, regardless of their well-being and the population's living standard.

Representatives of the North Korean administration issued a statement saying that the United States and its allies have lost the "political and military confrontation" to the DPRK
