Borodin: better in prison than in hospital

Pavel Borodin, the state secretary of the Union State of Russia and Belarus, was discharged from the Brooklyn (New York) hospital yesterday evening only to return to prison where he had been held from January 18 to March 13. As Pravda.Ru has already reported, the infarction, tentatively diagnosed in him by prison physicians, failed to be confirmed. At present, his health condition is reported to be satisfactory. Mr. Borodin was discharged from hospital and taken back to prison in the presence of Pavel Prokofyev, Consul General of the Russian Federation in New York. Mr. Borodin himself seems to be glad to be back in his prison cell. The conditions in which the State Secretary of the Union State held in hospital seem to have been rather harsh. One of his hands was permanently fastened to his bed, and the bailiffs guarded him day and night. Mr. Borodin was not allowed to use the telephone while in hospital. All attempts made by the Russian side to have these conditions failed to succeed. The American authorities referred to the rules existing in the country for such instances. The prison conditions under which Mr. Borodin is kept are much better. It should be mentioned that “prison diseases” are very popular with jailed controversial figures. Usually, such diseases will instantly pass off as soon an the convict is freed. As you may remember, suspected American spy Admond Pope is said to have suffered from a rare form of skin cancer – a diagnosis confirmed neither by Russian physicians at the time of his Moscow imprisonment nor by his native doctors when back in US.
