"We ask all our colleagues to focus on providing quality medical services to their patients according to the approved schedule of work and participation in professional events," it said.

The ministry also added that it always informs the public about any meetings, conferences and other events through its officials, website, and official channels in social networks.

"The pressure on medical workers to participate in political events is illegal and entails administrative and criminal liability," the press service said.
