The institution stated that the operation was being done “solely for medical reasons.”
Moscow clinic “Best Clinic” has published a message in which it accused the media of publishing inaccurate information about the conduct of clitorectomy – the operation on “female circumcision”. So the institution responded to the material “Medusa”.
The report of the clinic states that clitorectomy is performed only for girls who have reached the age of 18. In addition, the institution stated that this is happening “solely for medical reasons,” under general anesthesia in the hospital and under the supervision of doctors.
Earlier, on November 27, the Medusa edition reported that the Best Clinic near the Baumanskaya metro station offered and provided female circumcision services to girls from 5 to 12 years old. Deputy Director General of Best Clinic, Lyubov Aksyonova, confirmed that she undergoes a clitorectomy. She explained that “demand has given birth to this offer” for people of a “particular religion”.
