Pediatric cardiologist Elena Baranova was fired in April 2021 for a Facebook comment.
Under someone else's post, she left some remarks about how, after what she saw in August on Okrestin and the detention of her son, she would not want to treat the enforcers.
Elena was fired from the Russian Scientific Center Mother and Child, as well as from the private medical center Lode, where she worked until then.
The doctor says she expressed what she thought and felt in that comment. To love or hate, everyone has a right. And it's not relevant at all, she explains. In August after the election, she spent some time at the detention center on Okrestin, helping as a volunteer doctor with the people being released. According to her, that volunteer work had a huge impact on her — it's impossible to live like before and forget.
In addition, Elena Baranova survived the detention of her son — he was also tried and fined.
She understands that now she is forced out of medicine in Belarus.
It is impossible for her to find a job now. The doctor needs our support!
