Doctors without Borders have been banned from working in Pro-Kremlin separatist territories.

An international organization, Médecins Sans Frontières, has received an official ban from the authorities of the Pro- Kremlin Donetsk Republic

 Bart Janssens, MSF Director of Operation, said that the ban took effect on October 19th and there was no explanation for the ban.

Janssens stressed the importance of the work of the organization in Donetsk region.

MSF employees have been helping mostly Diabetics and people suffering from kidney diseases.

In addition since 2011 MSF employees have been conducting a program to help tuberculosis patients in Donetsk prisons.

The region will experience Health care issues if these programs are stopped, said Janssens.

In September another representative of MSF, Corinne Baker, said that the authorities of Luhansk Pro-Kremlin republic have been trying to intimidate the MSF employees accusing them in illegal possession of psychotropic drugs.
