MOSCOW, August 16 (Itar-Tass) —— A Russian newborn who needs specific medical treatment has been taken by a Russian emergencies ministry’s plane from Turkey to Moscow to be further taken to the Research Centre of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Perinatology, Oleg Ionov, the head of the centre’s intensive care department told Itar-Tass early on Thursday.
“A special plane of the Russian emergencies ministry has just landed in the Ramenskoye airfield outside Moscow. The baby will be taken to our center in about one hour,” he said.
“The baby was born prematurely, when his mother, a resident of Russian southern city of Volgograd, was 28 weeks pregnant. The newborn weighs 1.390 kilograms,” Ionov said.
According to the Russian emergencies ministry, the plane took four more Russians who felt sick during their vacations in Turkey. They will be taken to specialized clinics.
