Belarusian psychiatrist: “Ukrainians do not have a balance. They have either ‘betrayal’ or ‘victory,’ either love or hate”
In 2001, Dmytro Shchygelsky, a Belarusian psychiatrist and member of the opposition party Belarusian Popular Front, diagnosed Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko as having mosaic psychopathy. After that, he and his family had to move to the United States.
Dmytro came to Ukraine in June 2015 to work in an evacuation team, to which the FVMH was recruiting all who had at least any medical qualification.
