MOSCOW, April 25 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Office of the Prosecutor General has ordered an inquiry into mass media reports claiming that the airline Vladivostok Avia, one of the major passenger carriers in this country, has refused to admit aboard a heavily disabled girl.
Marina Gridneva, a spokeswoman for the Prosecutor General’s Office said the inquiry had been ordered over the media reports that Vladivostok Avia managers had refused to admit aboard a certain Marina Barlukova, was supposed to fly from Moscow to the city of Ulan-Ude in Eastern Siberia.
Media reports said Ms Barlukova, an 18-year-old patient suffering from bone cancer, was supposed to fly back home to Ulan-Ude after a highly complicated two-months-long course of treatment in Moscow April 22. However, a day before the departure from Moscow the airline demanded that the organizers of her trip issue a medical warranty that the trip would be completed successfully.
The Podari Zhizn /Present a Life/ charity foundation issued a letter to the airline saying it would not have any claims, should anything happen to Ms Barlukova, a person with a heavily restricted motor function, but the airline issued a new demand then, asking the doctors to provide a certificate that nothing would happen to the girl en route.
“For the purpose of defending the rights of passengers with a restricted motor function, the Prosecutor General’s Office issued an instruction to the Far-Eastern Transport Prosecutor to inspect /Vladivostok Avia’s/ compliance with legislation and to take all-embracing prosecutorial measures in this connection,” spokeswoman Marina Gridneva said.
