SUICIDE IS “CONTAGIOUS”?
Maybe suicidal tendencies develop from the deputies after the news of the death of a colleague.
– Specifically I can’t speak – says the assumption the Deputy of the Party of Regions Tatiana Bakhteyeva. – I do not know whether he was sick (Stanislav Miller), in what condition he was – we’ve been out of touch lately. But in such a situation, in which our country is, very many people develop depression. Artists, politicians, people who are active, aware of current issues. All things are possible. Perhaps it was a disease. As a doctor, I can explain suicide, except that aggravated disease.
