What Putin Can Learn from Chavez's Hospital Stay
Yulia Latynina, Moscow Times
On March 5, Venezuelan authorities announced that President Hugo Chavez died. Whether he actually died on that day or on a previous date remains unclear. In any event, Chavez died from cancer that was clearly complicated by poor medical care that he received in Cuba. He turned to Cuban oncologists apparently because there were few other places he could go for cancer treatment.
