Kolesnikov’s arrest has been prolonged till August

The Pechersk district court of Kyiv prolonged the arrest of the chairman of Donetsk regional council, Boris Kolesnikov, until August 6, MIGnes.com.ua reported.

This decision was made by the judge, Anjela Strizhevska, on the grounds of the claim submitted by the General Office of Public Prosecutor. The General Prosecution appealed to the court to prolong the Kolesnikov’s arrest for another 2 months until August 6, and thus the overall term now makes up 4 months.
The General prosecution motivated the Kolesnikov’s arrest by the fact that his liberation might have impeded the completion of the case, as well as resulted in new crimes. In turn, Kolesnikov claimed that there are no reasons for the continuation of the arrest and required to alter the very measure of suppression.

Having considered the General Office’s of Public Prosecutor decision, the court satisfied it in full. The court’s decision might be appealed in Kyiv Court of Appeals.

About 100 supporters of the Social-Democratic party (united) and the Party of Regions picketed the Pechersk district court of Kyiv, where the Kolesnikov’s case was decided on Thursday.

We remind, the General Prosecution accused Kolesnikov of blackmail and abuse of office. On 8 April the Pechersk district court of Kyiv, after the consideration of the measure in Kolesnikov’s case, had decided to arrest him, and then the Court of Appeals affirmed that decision. Kolesnikov was detained on 6 April on the suspicion of blackmailing. The criminal proceeding in due fact was instituted against him in February.

VScan HIV test kits in Ukraine

VScan HIV test kits in Ukraine

Medical Services International Inc. is pleased to announce that it has received regulatory approval to sell its VScan HIV test kits in the Ukraine. Market studies show that it is reasonable to expect that the Company will sell in excess of 750,000 HIV test kits in the first year. In addition to the approval in Ukraine, the Company expects that it will receive approval in several surrounding countries, PR Newswire reported.

Most of the rapid test kits for detection of HIV in this area are based on the identification of the IgG antibody which does not show up until 90 to 120 days after infection. By then the immune system has been seriously compromised.

The VScan test kit detects the HIV exposure upon the formation of any of the antibodies (IgM, IgA, IgD, or IgG). Of the antibodies indicated, the first three all form before IgG.

The first antibody that forms after the infection of HIV is IgM. IgM is detectable at the earliest stages (2 to 11 days) of viral infection before the immune system can be seriously compromised. It has been conclusively shown that the VScan rapid test kit detects the IgM antibody making it much more sensitive and specific to the detection of the HIV infection than any other HIV test kit on the market.

The VScan HIV rapid test kit currently on the market that detects the IgM antibody.

The VScan rapid test kit is a single use, disposable, accurate, cost effective, easy to use, test for the screening of HIV 1&2, Hepatitis B&C, Tuberculosis (TB), Dengue Fever, West Nile, Syphilis, Malaria and Prostate Cancer. The kits cannot be sold in Canada.
