Aksyonov thanked Alexander Mogilevsky, former Health Minister, for taking charge of the Health Ministry ‘at a difficult time of reforms’.

“I would also like to thank the Ministry’s personnel and all health workers for doing their job regardless of whatever challenges. On the part of the Crimean government, I pledge broad support, said Aksyonov.
