MOSCOW, July 8 (Itar-Tass) — An operation to evacuate Russian nationals who suffered in a road accident in Ukraine to Moscow has ended successfully, Alexander Popov, an emergency physician at the ‘Tsentrospas’ detachment of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
An Il-76 aircraft landed at the Ramenskoye airfield in the Moscow suburb of Zhukovsky. It had delivered 14 people who received serious traumas in a bus accident in Ukraine’s Chernigov region.
The patients had been placed in special medical modules installed on the plane which is also equipped with a mobile intensive care unit. Doctors from the ‘Tsentrospas’ detachment of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations and the ‘Zaschita’ All-Russian Center of Emergency Medicine accompanied the injured, monitored their condition and gave them intensive therapy.
All the patients were taken to Moscow hospitals straight from the airfield.
A Yak-42 plane delivered another 11 tourists with light injuries to Pskov from where the pilgrims had set off on their tour.
