  • What is China’s Belt and Road Initiative? And how is it related to Kazakhstan? 08 February 2019 The “One Belt-One Road” Initiative, also known as the “Belt and Road” Initiative (BRI), is a project which was first announced in September 2013 by President Xi Jinping during his visit to Kazakhstan’s capital, Astana.

Transplantation is the gold standard in the treatment of this pathology, however, due to the shortage of donor organs, the use of mechanical support for the heart is actively developing.
