It was converted into department sotszashchity with a question: Who will pay journey on treatment? to me have responded that it is necessary to pay for journey most, because instead of free journey to other city now monthly payments. And have still told that if will give a vacation package in sanatorium to go there too it is necessary at own expense. And earlier it was free. So have explained: to you have given out 550 roubles, here and go for a drive . Yes it is ridiculous. The one way ticket from Luchegorska to Vladivostok costs almost 500 roubles...
