He is head of the neurosurgery department at the Nevski Hospital. He is a man of nice and gentle gestures who does not believe in afterlife. Many of his patients are in an irreversible state of coma according to his diagnosis. He is certain that after a time of no recovery it is necessary to talk to the families and “release them”.
