BRYANSK, December 21 (Itar-Tass) — Bryansk schoolgirl Vika Petrova received a notebook as a New Year gift from Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.
The schoolgirl of the sixth grade from the Bryansk secondary school number 38 wrote a letter to the president and told him about her dream – a notebook and a play station. The president decided to satisfy the wish of the schoolgirl and sent relevant instructions to regional authorities.
Bryansk Mayor Sergei Smirnov presented the computer to the girl, who showed excellent results in her studies, from the president.
“I wrote two letters – one to the Father Frost and another to the president,” Vika told the mayor. “Dmitry Anatolyevich most likely received the letter earlier,” she said.
